Hi, try this:

___________________________________________________

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetDesktopWindow Lib "user32" () As Long

Private Function StartDoc(ByVal FileName As String) As Long
    Dim Scr_hDC As Long
    Scr_hDC = GetDesktopWindow()
    'change "Open" to "Explore" to bring up file explorer
    StartDoc = ShellExecute(Scr_hDC, "Open", FileName, "", "C:\", 1)
End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim i As Long
    i = StartDoc("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MSDN98\98VS\1033\Adodc98.chm")
End Sub

'Hope will help.
