Starting a program.

How do I start a program? I have a program that exports an HTML-document, and I want to open it in the standard browser when it's exported. How can I do that? The browser may not be as a child-process from my own program, it has to be independent. I think I can start it by trying to start the HTML-file itself.

First, you need to get the paths of the browser and the html file.

//standard ie path
CString browserPath;
browserPath="c:\\program files\\"+
  "internet explorer\\iexplore.exe";

CString htmlPath;
htmlPath="c:\\webpage.html";

WinExec(browserPath+" "+htmlPath,
        SW_SHOWNORAML);

Good Luck!
