Shell Execute / Multiple Instancing
Posted on 2000-04-27
I am writing an app in VB in which I generate reports in HTML and then launch a browser to display them (using ShellExecute)
My problem is that each time I use ShellExecute it recycles the current instance of IE - I would like to be able to have multiple instances at any given time.
Any suggestions ? Note - I dont want a solution which depends upon my knowing which browser is installed, so no command-line switches for iexplore.exe please !
The code I'm using is shown below :
Call ShellExecute(Me.hwnd, "open", "c:\myreport.htm", vbNullString, "c:\", sw_shownormal)
