1. How to launch an executable at run-time?

Just use one of the two following commands: "Action.OpenFile" and "Action.OpenExeFileAndWait". The difference between the two commands is that the second one will wait for the end-user to close the exe before continuing. For more help on how to use those two functions, go to the Language Reference.
