    Hello, I'm working on some project and I need your help guys. I'm just a beginner. I searched the forums for a related topic but couldn't found any resolved answer. So how can I fire my external application "DXSETUP.exe" at center screen position using this code? Thanks.

    Code:
    Private Sub Panel3_MouseClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles Panel3.MouseClick
        Try
          Me.Hide()
          Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000)
          With dx.StartInfo
            .UseShellExecute = True
            .FileName = Application.StartupPath & "\redist\directx_Jun2010_redist\DXSETUP.exe"
          End With
          dx.Start()
          dx.WaitForExit()
          dx.Close()
          Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000)
          Try
            Shell(Application.StartupPath & "\Setup.exe", vbNormalFocus)
          Catch ex As Exception
            gui_error1.ShowDialog()
          End Try
          Application.Exit()
        Catch ex As Exception
          gui_error2.ShowDialog()
        End Try
      End Sub
