Best way to launch other applications

What is the best way to launch other applications on a Windows platform?
I have used "launch filename with appname" with limited success.

The problems with it are:

- Only 1 document can be opened at a time per application.  In order to
a 2nd document, you must quit the entire application and relaunch it.

- I can't launch Excel files this way after building a distribution.
They launch
within the Revolution IDE but not after a distribution is built.

Thanks in advance,
