Activating a browser from a C++ program (borland c++ to be specific)
Posted on 2001-06-25
I have a C++ application - when the user clicks on a button, it needs to take them to a vendor web site (this is dictated by the vendor who supplies a library I use).
I have not idea what browser, if any the user may have installed.. they may not even have one.
Is there a recommended way to activate a web link if the user has a browser installed? I don't want to prompt them for any information.. if it fails, (i.e. no browser installed or available) then I plan on not displaying anything different..
