    Running app from delphi


    Hello,

    I have such problem. I have Delphi program, which starts another application (SomeApp) with ShellExecute method. SomeApp by itself is a full-screen application. I need to run SomeApp in Windowed mode with possibility to return to full-screen.

    I'm knocked down by searchin for the solution, because I don't really know what I need.

    Please share some links where I can read about it or please provide some ideas on how to do this exactly.

    Thank you!

    Have you tried passing SW_SHOWNORMAL as the last parameter for ShellExecute?

    Yes, I did. But what's next?

    If this could be useful somehow, I have hookdll.dll library.
