Dear inpras,
  I tried this but i could not able to open 2 sites in different browsers using two ShellExecute(); functions in same code.

I got the thing to work fine - I'm using NT4.0...

ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "iexplore.exe", "www.experts-exchange.com", NULL, SW_SHOW);      

ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "iexplore.exe", "www.IWon.com", NULL, SW_SHOW);      

even back-to-back calls to ShellExecute() work... how are you coding yours??
