How can I tell an *already running* instance of internet explorer to open a given file? ******** I am not the Iraqi information minister. GSACP : GameDev Society Against Crap Posting To join: Put these lines in your signature and don''t post crap!

Take the file, and drag&drop it to IE?

I think Windows is even clever enough, that if you doubleclick on a .html and there is already a IE-Instance open, it''ll re-use this one. Or maybe use the file > open... dialog?

use

ShellExecute(HWND,"some_text",file_to_execute,NULL,NULL,0);

you can find better explanation from win32 api documentation.

ShellExecute is how I launched IE with the first page, now I would like to send a second, or third...
