Hey guys now usually i hate it when people in this forum come and basically ask someone else to code for them...but i really need some information here that I'm struggling to find anywhere. I would like to make a "quick launch" app in C++ where basically whenever you type in a keyword the app launches. First of all, is it possible to ask the program to "scan" the program files in order to see the list of programs and under what name they are. Second of all, what is the code that would let me execute the program that is typed in? Thanks in advance, and again i do apologies for asking this type of favor.
