Help calling HTML page
I have a VB6 app that I want to display HTML directions. The Shell command seems to require a .EXE to run. It will not accept just the target html page such as:
Shell "C:\Data\Page.htm", vbNormalFocus
This returns a "File not Found" error. Is there any way to make a webpage display using just the page info?
Shell "IEXPLORE.EXE c:\data\page.htm", vbNormalFocus
does not work either, as the Shell command needs the full path to the .EXE. The only way I could get this to work at all was with the command:
Shell "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE c:\data\page.htm", vbNormalFocus
Is there any way to call the default HTML viewer (IE, Mozilla, etc)? I do not want to hard code a path to IE in the code. The user's installation may be non-standard or have IE removed all together.
Please post questions to the forums, where others may benefit.
I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!
