ShellExecute (sVerb, sFile, sExtraParams, sWorkingDirectory, windowstate)

Performs a "ShellExecute" function on the given file. This lets you tell the Windows shell to perform an operation on a specified file.

The nice thing about ShellExecute is that you don't need to know what specific application is registered to handle a particular type of file. For technical background information, see the "ShellExecute" function in the Windows Shell API documentation.
