    Hi

    I have many programs written in C and i have only CUI now. To make a GUI
    front end for all my C programs, i wish to use VB(i know only VB and not
    VC++).

    Can i do that?. If so, How to integrate the C programs in VB?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  2. Try running shellexec(or something else) to launch the CUI program, then
    write to a file that is then read/deleted by the script.
    I dont know much scripting, but I know this a little..
