You really don't embed programs in programs. You can execute an .exe from your app and distribute it with your program or find an API, SDK, or some DLL that you could call. That is assuming you need chatter between your app and the app you are trying to host.

At the best here's a C# app that does help and explain a way of doing it - though only to launch it.

Side note - what is "barcode39.exe"?
