open .txt in wordpad

Recommended Posts

randeep

hello all

i have written a program that uses the scripts written in .txt format from a particular location (C:\Scripts) and reads it by opening in wordpad. now the problem is that when i used this program in an another computer it opened it in 'notepad'. so the program was not able read the files opened with notepad and returned error.

i just need that program should only open the scripts in wordpad. i know i can change from the properties of the scripts, but a new user that will use my program will not be aware of that and he will face 'errors'. pls help......

thanx

How do you open the scripts ?

You can use the command :

wordpad.exe *fullpathofthefile*

(wordpad.exe is always in the path, so you don't need the full path to it)
