How do I start a program. I tried in the notepad.
@echo off
Start ooVoo.exe
Start ooVoo.Ink
Start "C:\Program Files (x86)\ooVoo\ooVoo.exe"
Start "C:\Program Files (x86)\ooVoo\"
None work.
Help Pleas, what are you supposed to put after the start t launch ooVoo.

If the program is a 32-bit program you should point to C:\Program Files (x86) and if it is a 64-bit program you should point to C:\Program Files. There are a couple of ways to find out where the program is located. Do a search using Windows explorer, right click on the shortcut and click on properties, and you can look in the Program Files (x86) and Program Files folders.
To break it down a little:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\ooVoo is the command to change directory followed by the path to the ooVoo folder in Program Files (x86)
As you already know ooVoo.exe is the executable file.
