App.path contains correct path yet cannot open file

I 'caught' the correct path where the executable and the HTML-file can be found in App.Path .

I want to open the OpenMe.htm file when I click on a picture, so inside the Picture_OnClick it looks a bit like the following:


ToOpen = Shell(App.Path & "ShellExecute.exe /F:App.Path & OpenMe.htm")


After "/F:" there has to be the path of the file to open, but as you can see it's wrong. Yet, when I use quotes after "/F:", it gives an error.

Try breaking your string like this:

"ShellExecute.exe " & App.Path & " OpenMe.htm"

Actually, I just remembered that App.Path doesnt store the ending "\", so you have to add it.

Shell(App.Path & "\ShellExecute.exe " & App.Path & "\OpenMe.htm")
