    Simulate Start->Run->OK

    If I click on Start->Run type in something like www.google.com and hit OK, google will open on the default browser. I was wondering how to simulate that programatically. Does anyone know? Thank you.

    Possibly something like this?
    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
       system("start www.google.com");
       return 0;
    }
    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.*

    or
    Code:
    ShellExecute(NULL, TEXT("open") , TEXT("www.google.com"), NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
