Am the only one who isn't quite sure what D2009 is?

Please be more specific and please don't bump posts, someone will answer in due time.

Your question is confusing... First you ask if it's possible to launch an executable from within a DLL(yes, of course it is), you then create an example that asks if it's possible for an executable to read a file path from a DLL and execute that file(yes, this is also possible)... Care to clarify?

I'm not going to waste my breathe by providing information that will likely be erroneous due to lack of information. Awaiting clarifications.

sory :worthy:

D2009 is Delphi 2009

i have a game launcher with small game protection(beter then nothing)

but its pointless since players can launch game without my launcher.. huh :o

so idea is to create DLL (atach it to game.exe(i got good tut :D )) and on game.exe click

it will launch my launcher.. thats all :wub:

Not it was'nt "hurd" If you explained your self more clearly im sure some one or even myself would have advised you to use WinExec or another method(there are lots of ways to achive what you have there).
