This plugin allows you to execute/terminate/list .exe files within blueprints.

When I finished developing my first game, I wanted a launcher for it. It bothered me that it is not possible to not start another .exe file with blueprints. Meanwhile I have more than 5 years of Unreal Engine experience and have used my knowledge to create this plugin.
