     This article show how to run start appz from your delphi program

				I saw no point in uploading a one liner so here is how you open other programs from your delphi program.
In the uses make sure you add ShellAPI.
The folllowing lines opens up notepad 

ShellExecute(Handle, 'Open', 'notepad', nil, nil, SW_SHOW);

To open the broswer and to go to a specific page use the following line.
ShellExecute(Handle, 'Open', '', nil, nil, SW_SHOW);
Rate this superb article :P
