newbie: launching applications from Delphi

Hello,

Here is a simple question: what is the most simple way of launching
another application (winword, excel) from a Deplhi program?

Thanks in advance

WinExec. (When that doesn't work you go to ShellExecute, which allows
you to specify the statup directory.)
