Chapter 18 (27 pages) describes how to launch any other program from within your program. For example, your program could launch Notepad or Excel. Although this is a short chapter, it is a surprisingly interesting topic, with many options.

Topics: Launching an external program (shell) separately from your program. Waiting for the external program to close. Passing filenames and other parameters. Running minimized, maximized. Keep from launching the external program twice (Mutex). Using Visual Studio tools vs manual coding. Running DOS programs and reading the console screen.

About this series: A beginner's guide to C-Sharp programming with Microsoft's Visual Studio, 2017. A complete programming guide. Simple, step-by-step, fully illustrated. Tailored for new and novice developers. Discusses basic techniques that all programmers need to learn.

This series is sold by Chapters at a low cost. A total of 28 chapters, in three volumes. Over 1800 pages, 900 quality illustrations.

Why am I distributing by chapter? To keep the cost down and to keep each section manageable. This book acts as a reference guide. Topics are covered in great detail, with little time spent on theory. The goal of these books are to solve programming problems quickly and efficiently.

I hope you enjoy reading and studying these pages as much as I have enjoyed writing them. –TRW
