Hi @lema7913 

It's not possible to start a Windows program from PowerApps.

This is a limitation with all web pages for security reasons, not just PowerApps.

You can use the Launch function to launch web pages and other documents, but it isn't possible to start an EXE,

Re: How to start a program from PowerApps

Ok. I didn't see PowerApps as a websolution, so I don't se a problem in coding af Run/Start function.

I'll accept this as a limitation, but I hope some developer will change it in the future
