Hi there,

I'm a Visual Basic novice and have written a very simple GUI which I want to use to run a c++ program. I'm wondering how I would write the button click event to call the C++ program? I assume there's probably a simple way to do this but my searches have been unsuccessful.

Thanks in advance,

Any idea how to do it?
