In my programme, I have one URL and that URL can be download some files. I want to know how can I pass this URL to the browser and then show a dialog to save in which path?  If not using "broswer" to download the files, what else I can do if I only have a URL in my programme.

Call ShellExecute(), and pass your URL as the argument.  The operating system will activate the default browser and the browser will try to open the URL.

That's pretty much all you need to do!

hi, can you give me more detail how to use this function to open the browser if i have a URL.

I don't know how to put right parameters in that function.

HINSTANCE ShellExecute(
    HWND hwnd,
    LPCTSTR lpOperation,
    LPCTSTR lpFile,
    LPCTSTR lpParameters,
    LPCTSTR lpDirectory,
    INT nShowCmd
);

ShellExecute(NULL, NULL, "http://www.experts-exchange.com", NULL, NULL, 0);


It's that simple.
