Hi Amit,

You can use the SysExec function to control even more 3rd party software like AutoIt to finally manipulate your other 3rd party application…

Best regards,

Read GerdW's response carefully.  What you really want to run is not your LabVIEW Executable, but a program such as "AutoIT" (use GerdW's link, or simply do a Web Search for "AutoIT") which provides you with a method to allow, say, a LabVIEW program to "Fill in the blanks" and "push buttons" on a third Executable (here, the LabVIEW program you want to "control").

 

I had a student who did this -- I'd never heard of AutoIT until he told me about it.  I'm pleased to say he got his PhD ...
