finding where netscape is using java

Posted by sudharama on April 17, 2001 at 8:12 AM

i am developing a tool with GUI having a button when i click on that button a
html file should open i am using the command
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("netscape.exe ex.html");
i am able to get the output because i have set the path of netscape.exe in start->settings->
control panel->system->environmentvariables..
and starting a new dos-prompt.
how does the program execute when i provide my tool to other systems..i cannot ask each and everybody to set their path..and
start a new cmd prompt..i am not able to get the output if i try
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe /c start netscape.exe ex.html");
Please tell me if i can find by any means where the netscape.exe file is there in the system,set the path and then use it..

how the above problem of opening a html file by clicking on a button be solved if the tool(GUI) is installed on any machine
