The easiest way to run any file that is not a program is to use the ShellExecute API function. Put the following code into a module:
Public Const SW_SHOW = 1
Public Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
You can now use the following command in your program:
|ShellCode = ShellExecute(Me.hWnd, "open", "C:\Files\Document.pdf", "", "", 1)|
This will return the PID (if it equals 0, the command has been unsuccessful).
