External file execution

How can I code a Visual C++ program that will execute a DOS bat file? Or any other executable file, for that matter?

Use the system() function. This function is part of the standard run-time library and takes the name of the command or file you want to run as an argument. Alternatively, if you are using Windows, you can use the ShellExecute/ShellExecuteEx function to gain more control over how the shelled application runs.
