It need note that Windows 8 has two version of IE (it should say, one application but two entry for different mode)

  • Desktop IE

  • Metro IE

But it is very tricky, if you type “open http://Web” on desktop explorer will open “Metro IE

When you try to use this command to open web side, please note metro browser will be default option, not desktop browser.

ShellExecute(NULL,TEXT(“open”), TEXT(“http://msdn.microsoft.com”), TEXT(“”),NULL,SW_SHOWNORMAL);

To specific using desktop browser, it should specific command on [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOThttpshellopencommand]
