    I imagine that in order to do this, one would have to call some OS-dependent code or executable (GeExecuteProgram() perhaps?).

    Is there any way to do this within the SDK or might I need to drag in the OS SDKs?

    Thanks,

    These are some command line switches for the windows expolrer. the one that might help is this:

    explorer /select,c:\windows\calc.exe .

    For opening external programms with command line switches i use to write a .bat file and open it with GeExecuteFile().

    Im not sure if this helps, but i hope so.

    That works very well for Windows. How about MacOS X? ;)

    I'll have to see what can be done there. No clue about AppleScripts. :)

    That'll take care of 10.5 but I'll still need alternatives for R9.1 to R10.1.
