Hum, the easiest way (if it is a .txt file) would be to

ShellExecute ( NULL, "open", "myfile.txt", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOW);

BTW, if you want to enforce the usage of notepad if it is a file not registered with it,

ShellExecute ( NULL, "open", "notepad.exe", "myfile.sth", NULL, SW_SHOW);

would work also.
