Exec DOS program

I've worked with BP 7.0. You can start DOS programs with the command Exec.
I searched the Delphi-help-files but couldn't find anything comparable.

Did I miss it ?
Or do I need some tool ?

Please also email your answer to me.

ShellExecute

Re:Exec DOS program


  in 16bit:  Use WinExec or ShellExecute.
  in 32bit:  User CreateProcess or ShellExecute....

  Do not use WinExec in 32bit (even tho you can)  --  the 16bit kernel is about
to be dropped with Win2000 Pro. (no longer called NT 5.0) so it won't work on
that OS....  (finally...  Now if only Win98 will catch up....)
