We have a VB5/6 application that has a companion intranet-based reporting
system. The main application is not an intranet app. The users want to
have a link inside the main app to kick-off the reporting app. There is
already a desktop IE shortcut to the reporting piece. The question is how
to you execute the an Internet Shortcut inside a VB app? Since it is a .url
not an .exe, Shell won't work.
