I need an application to automate a commercial applicaiton for which I dont have a developer version. So here's what I need done:
At the end of my VB application, I want the commercial application to be started and folder name sent to that application. Is this possible? Could a vb application type in information or some how feed this info to the other application
THanks

if the developer of the comercial application would allow you to start it passing the folder path as an arguement you could just simply:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(<comercial app path&file name>, "c:\myfolder\comercialfolder")

where <comercial app path&file name> is the name & location of the comercial application and you can store the "c:\myfolder\comercialfolder" in a string variable so if the folder location changes all you need to do is update the variable to reflect the changes
