Executing an Windows File Browser in an MDIChild

Executing an Windows File Browser in an MDIChild

Hello Everybody,

I´m looking for a way to execute the Windows File Browser (winfile.exe or windows explorer) in a windows of my own application.
This application is an MDI application, were user should be able to copy and drap´drop files from one MDIChild to another. This allready works with external File Browser (I.E., when the user starts the File Browser outside from the application, he can drop in the MDIChilds files he just took from the explorer).
Currently, I use a MDIChild that makes basics functions of a file browser, but I would like to have any function of the real Windows Browser without re-develloping all this stuffs.

Thanks for any reply,
