: : : I have a question. How can I start another exe program from my coded program? What is the function?
: : In DelphiLand's section "Code Snips", you find a complete mini-tutorial on this subject, together with a downloadable demo project.
: Yes, I have seen, but my Delphi 4 haven't got such a function as "ShellExec". It has no such words in Help file too. May be the version is too old?

ShellExecute is a Windows function, not a Delphi function. Therefore, it is not in the Delphi help files. Just download the file EXEWAIT.ZIP, the first in our download section, and try to compile and use that demo project :)
