Launch external apps


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.


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.
