function RunApplication(FileName: string; Parameters: string=''; Directory: String=''; ShowCmd: Integer=SW_SHOWNORMAL): Boolean;

Description
RunApplication extracts specified file to the system temporary folder and executes it.
RunApplication returns true if application was executed successfully.
FileName is a string that specifies the file to open.
Parameters specifies parameters to be passed to the application.
Directory specifies the default directory.
ShowCmd specifies how the application is to be shown when it is opened.
This parameter can be one of the following values:

Value   Meaning   
SW_HIDE   Hides the window and activates another window.   
SW_MAXIMIZE   Maximizes the specified window.   
SW_MINIMIZE   Minimizes the specified window and activates the next top-level window in the Z order.   
SW_RESTORE   Activates and displays the window. If the window is minimized or maximized, Windows restores it to its original size and position. An application should specify this flag when restoring a minimized window.   
SW_SHOW   Activates the window and displays it in its current size and position.   
SW_SHOWDEFAULT   Sets the show state based on the SW_ flag specified in the STARTUPINFO structure passed to the CreateProcess function by the program that started the application. An application should call ShowWindow with this flag to set the initial show state of its main window.   
SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED   Activates the window and displays it as a maximized window.   
SW_SHOWMINIMIZED   Activates the window and displays it as a minimized window.   
SW_SHOWMINNOACTIVE   Displays the window as a minimized window. The active window remains active.   
SW_SHOWNA   Displays the window in its current state. The active window remains active.   
SW_SHOWNOACTIVATE   Displays a window in its most recent size and position. The active window remains active.   
SW_SHOWNORMAL   Activates and displays a window. If the window is minimized or maximized, Windows restores it to its original size and position. An application should specify this flag when displaying the window for the first time.   

Note:
If you need to delete the file from temporary folder after its execution for some reasons (security, ...), you should do it manually.
