A Replacement/Enhancement of the VDF Runprogram Command.

Extra features of using StartProg over the VDF Runprogram are:
  • The ability to run an application as hidden
  • The possibility to customize this further
  • From the calling program you can determine if the action to try and run your application was succesfull (if a non zero value is returned)
  • You get the process ID back in the calling program which you can use to interact with the process that you started.
