Launch external apps


#1

Hi
I have a newbie question. I’m trying to build a flashy installer GUI in Juce and i need to be able to launch my installers that are on the harddrive from my app. Is this possable?

You can call File::startAsProcess(). It won’t let you monitor the sub-process, but it’ll get it going.

Great i’ll try that. All i need this thing to do is run the extrnal app and quit.


#4

Does the app have to be embedded into the project or can i launch it from a relative position on the harddrive?

You specify the exe file you want to run.
