I wish to now port into my level editor the ability to execute a file by selecting a file command. Is there a MFC class that wraps all that up into something easy like "ExecuteFile(&lpszPath)" or something along those lines? Just want to open a file assigned to a pre-defined path string

i would say "ShellExecute" or "ShellExecuteEx", since they allow you to run programs, or use the context-menu options on non-executable files (i.e. printing a file, or opening it in a browser).
