How to invoke WordPad in VB6 app
This is something that should be simple but is not. I cannot invoke WordPad for file that I created. The file type can be anything that I want it to be if that helps. The app has to run on all platforms present, past and future(Win9x +).
Note that I can invoke Notepad with Shell with no problem. And Shellex brings up Word which garbles up the file due to the long line lengths. Shell to Wordpad gets a 'file not found' error msg.
This app has to run on user systems across the universe so I cannot manually manipulate the registry.
How can I get Wordpad to come up, simply ??
