    Borland CBuilder -> Launch external application

    Gidday,

    I'm using Borland C++Builder 6 and I'd like to know how to launch an external application andn open a file in another application (Eg: Open a web page in Internet Explorer). I expect there's a function for it somewhere, but I can't find it.

    If you could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.

    PS: Im using the VCL.
