Hey guys, Fist time posting, been lurking for a couple of months =P. I am building a game menu which will navigate through my portfolio of work. The idea is to go into different sections and being able to open up files that are included such as a video, pictures, an executable, pretty much anything depending on how the OS opens it. I just want to open it as if you were clicking on the file itself. How could this be done? btw, I am using the Allegro Library and C++.
