    >>i searched the board but couldnt find an answer
    Then you didn't search hard enough.... this question was asked just yesterday.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Are you working on a web browser? Otherwise, look up SheelExecute() at MSDN.

    Under windows:

    char* urlStr = "http://www.addr.com";

    ShellExecute(Handle, "open", urlStr, NULL, NULL, SW_MAXIMIZE);

    Where:

    The ShellExecute function opens or prints a specified file. The file can be an executable file or a document file. See ShellExecuteEx also.

    HINSTANCE ShellExecute(

    HWND hwnd, // handle to parent window
    LPCTSTR lpOperation, // pointer to string that specifies operation to perform
    LPCTSTR lpFile, // pointer to filename or folder name string
    LPCTSTR lpParameters, // pointer to string that specifies executable-file parameters
    LPCTSTR lpDirectory, // pointer to string that specifies default directory
    INT nShowCmd // whether file is shown when opened
    );
