dosLaunchApp(string Application, string State, integer Wait)
Launches the specified application in the state specified and optionally waits until the application launches terminates.
Application : A string specifying the pathname of the application to launch.
On Windows, the string may contain command line arguments. Note that double quotes should surround command line arguments or white spaces should be avoided in the Application argument to avoid incorrect interpretation of the command line. For example, if director.exe resides in "C:\director", you can pass: "C:\director\director.exe" to launch Director. If director.exe resides in "C:\program files\director" and you wish to open "C:\movie.dir", you can pass ""C:\program files\director\director.exe" C:\movie.dir" to launch "C:\movie.dir" using Director. Note that the "C:\program files\director\director.exe" is surrounded by double quotes because it contains white spaces.
Return Value : An integer indicating whether the application was successfully launched. If 0 is returned, dosLaunchApp() was unable to launch the application in which case dosGetLastError() should be called to determine the cause of the error. If 1 or -1 is returned, the application was successfully launched. If a value greater than 1 is returned, the application was successfully launched, and the returned integer indicates the ID of the launched application's window.
