VMP means VISION PROGRAM MANAGER

It is a PPT VISIONS camera's software..

This question is similar like to open microsoft word or any software using MATLAB.

The sales page for VPM indicates that it offers support for ActiveX. See Kaustubha's Answer for more information on how to use ActiveX from MATLAB.

Unfortunately the site requires registration to read any documentation other than the FAQ, so I am going only by a brief mention in the sales page.

If the software has a COM interface, you can use the MATLAB COM Interface. Alternately, you can explore the other External Interfaces that MATLAB provides and see if the software has any compatible interfaces.

If you can figure out how to launch VPN from the Windows or Linux command line (try reading the VPN documentation or doing a Google search), you can execute the program from Matlab's command line or from within a program by putting ! in front of it (see here).

Is it VPN or VPM? I have not heard of any VPM, but VPN would usually be for virtual private networks.

I've never heard of VPM either but that's what Lalit said. Maybe he means this - that's the only reasonable thing I found.
