Howdy,

I've come far enough along to see how to launch an external app

But my problem is, that I want to launch the internet explorer in a generic way, without having to know what directory 'iexplore.exe' resides in. Is this possible?

Regards,

- Tim

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("start iexplore.exe");

Or even better, consider using BrowserLauncher and avoid losing cross-platform goodness.
