    Question Execute another program

    I'm making a game, and I have a button that links to my site. I want the site to open in Internet Explorer. My question here is what is the function to execute another program, and what are its arguments?

    ShellExecute(). Look it up MSDN.

    Ah, I tried that... But when I went to compile it, it came up with the wrong number of arguments.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Wow. I feel stupid. I did skim over the FAQ and didn't see that. Thanks.
