Windows 7: How to make an exe that opens another exe

How to make an exe that opens another exe

Hello,
I have a problem with games explorer that is a little complicated ( for me ).
Crysis Warhead opens the 32 bit version on default, and there is nothing on regedit that i can do to do edit that, since it has its gameux configs. on a dll.
So my workaround would be to make an Exe that opens the 64 bit, and overwrite the 32 bit exe.

So, what i have to do is create an exe that opens another.
Can anybody help me?

I'm not good with exe's, but I do know you will need some sort of compiler like VB maybe.

About your game explorer problem, you've checked C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer and see if you can edit the shortcut to Crysis from there, right?

Wouldn't it be easier to just right click on the shortcut and select 64 bit from there,

Both solutions worked for me, i didn't check that appdata and it is in fact easier to just click the 64 bit shortcut. Thanks ^^
