Hi s_syed,

system is used to launch programs from a C program

#include <iostream.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
char command[] = "L:\\program files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe x:\\paradise.jpg";
int main()
{
      cout << "Inside main" << endl;
      
      system(command);
      return 0;
}

i tried like that and got an error as

Inside main
'L:\program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Press any key to continue

instead of

>>char command[] = "L:\\program files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe x:\\paradise.jpg";

use

>> char command[] = "\"L:\\program files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe\" x:\\paradise.jpg";
