    Hello

    Just having some trouble opening a Network location with the ShellExecute() call.

    I've tried opening the Share using the ShellExecute() call, however, it didn't work;

    ShellExecute(NULL, TEXT("open"), TEXT("explorer"), TEXT("\\panarchy\\share"), NULL, SW_HIDE);

    Please tell me a method of opening the network share (in explorer) with C++.

    Thanks in advance,

    Panarchy

    PS: Please make sure that whichever method you suggest to me, can be run without launching a command-prompt window.

    Hello

    Joske solved it for me, see below;
    Code:
    [B]ShellExecute[/B](NULL, "explore", "\\\\panarchy\\share", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
