 Can't run DOS programs

I need to run a DOS program from within my Delphi 2.0 program but it seems
that the ShellExecute function has some bugs.  Has anyone been successful
at doing this?  If so, please let me know through my email.  Thanks!

Hello,

If you must run a DOS Program, you must use ShellExecute but the program
to run is 'COMMAND.COM' and the parameters are:
        '/C name_dos_prog'

Bye.
