The .hta extension is for MS HTML Application files, which are interpreted by MSHTA.exe, not IE. The file type should already be associated with the application, so you should be able to just run:

ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\index.hta")

Or, like this:

$iPID = Run('mshta.exe "' & @ScriptDir & '\index.hta' & '"')

I'm not sure about trying to make it an embedded object, but you can set parent for the window. I believe there are demos already of embedding a notepad.exe window, for example, using _WinAPI_SetParent().


Edit: Forgot to close parens.

.hta's will not be embed-able like typical browser instances. You can use _IENavigate (.navigate method) to open a .hta, but a new process and new window will be created because of what PsaltyDS mentions above. You can _IEAttach to this new window, but the WinAPI suggestion is probably your best chance to embed.
