Launch an AIR application from within another AIR application

Have you ever needed to launch another AIR application from within an AIR application? I have found myself wondering how this would be done exactly, and noticed that Rich Tretola just did a great blog post this morning on two ways to do it, including source code. He presented the solutions at 360 | Flex recently and was kind enough to share it on his blog. He shows one solution using an undocumented AIR class called ProductManager, and another of how to load from the Browser API air.swf in the event that you are not sure the other AIR app is installed on the user’s machine. Check it out if you find yourself in need of this functionality in the future!
