Open folder with NSIS

Hi, Im trying to write a launcher which allows users to launch freeware apps which dont allow distribution, like Cool PDF. The launcher will open your browser so you can download the binary and then open the folder you need to save it to.

The problem im having is I cant figure out how to get NSIS to open a folder. Ive tried Exec and the folder name, ive tried ExecShell "Open" and the folder name but it just wont open it.

Any ideas?

Maybe

you could have NSIS download stuff without using the browser.

Sussed it.

I now have a Cool PDF Portable launcher I belive Im allowed to distribute, the launcher is GLP and it downloads Cool PDF from the web site at the users request so complies with their no distribution policy.

If anyones intrested I can post it.
