I'm not sure whether TProcess is the right abstraction. A bundled  
application does not have command line arguments, standard input,  
output, a console window, a current/working directory (that one is set  
by the OS) and moreover normally you never wait for such an  
application to finish, so almost none of the existing functionality of  
TProcess would work (or even make sense) when executing a bundle.
