Open a .txt with Wordpad, not notepad
I use this line to open a txt file with notepad:
Shell "NOTEPAD.EXE " & App.Path & "\" & "Settings.ini", vbMaximizedFocus
which works fine, but the problem is that there are some txt files that don't show correctly with notepad and I need to open them with Word or Wordpad.
Since Wordpad is installed almost everywhere and Word is not, I'd like to open the file with Wordpad.
The problem is that I don't want to write the full path of the exe as it may not be the same in every system.
How do I do that? :-o
I have an idea of changing the file association to Wordpad, open the file and then change it back again to whatever it was, but I don't really know how to do that :-)
