Hi ,

How can one open a program like Thunderbird's Calendar from a form button in base ? That I guess should be subject to a test to see whether the program is actually installed. Is the first part done via windows shell ?

Generally this can be done using the Shell() function. However in case of thunderbird's calender the problem is, that there is no obvious command line option to start calendar, since it is implemented as an add-on.
