Use Winexec());

WinExec("PATH\BROWSER.EXE File:///c:|path/file", SW_NORMAL");


Notes:

PATH is the full path to your browser.
BROWSER.EXE is the filename of the browswer executable.(Example Netscape.exe or MSIE.exe)

The File:///<drive>|path/file.html is URL syntax for a file in a local drive. (File:/// indicates that it is in a local drive) notice that the <drive>: is changed to <drive>|  (bar)and backslashes are changed to slashes.For example:

c:\MyPath\Myfile

is mapped as:

c|/MyPath/Myfole
