    The following sample opens the indicater file by strDir in the default browser....this works with the current directory but you can place any value you want to replace strDir....


    Code:
    void CAboutDlg::OnButton1() 
    {
    	CString strDir;
    	char buffer[255];
    
    	GetCurrentDirectory(255, buffer);
    
    	strDir = buffer;
    	
    	strDir.TrimRight("\\");
    	strDir += "\\";
    	strDir += _T("helpindex.html");
    
    	if( 32 >= (int)ShellExecute( NULL, "open", strDir, NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL))
    	{
    		AfxMessageBox("::ShellExecuteFailed"
    			 " to open this link!");
    	}	
    }
