hello every one
i am having a small problem
in my java program i need to open a webpage
i used the rundll command as shown below
rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler
while running this command a browser window opens up when there is no browser open on the desktop. but the problem is if there is a explorer window already and then u run the command , instead of opening in a new window the site is opened in the existing window itself.
what i wanted was to open the window as a new one
can any one suggest me in this
i searched with google and came empty handed in this particular issue
hoping for the reply
