029264 - How to launch a PDF file from intouch

Problem

The customer would liek to have a button in intouch which would launch adobe PDF reader, and display a help file for the end user.

Product Version: 10.0

OS: Win 2003

OS_SP: SP2

Solution

To do this we use the StartApp function in intouch. For example: StartApp("C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\acrord32 c:\HELPDOCUMENT.pdf"); The first path is the path to the executable (May vary depending on version installed), the second path is the path to the file which should be opened.
