Drive Browser Example

This is a fairly simple code that is an alternative to Windows
Explorer or My Computer. An example using the DriveListBox,
DirListBox and FileListBox, this code was "inspired" by File
Browser, uploaded a few days ago. However, I wrote every line
of code in it except for the "Error" section, you'll see when
you download it. This application distances itself from most,
maybe all of the other file browsers on PSC because it enables
you to OPEN files from right within the application, by using
the Shell ("Start ") API call. This enables you to open all
types of files that are associated with an application, not
just open specific files. This function does not ALWAYS work,
I don't have a clue why not, but if anyone could
point out why this is happening, if they could post an
UNDERSTANDABLE comment, it would be greatly appreciated. Now,
if you think this code is worthy, throw a few positive comments
amd votes my way, and bear in mind, I'm 11 and this is in the
BEGINNER category. Some of you seem to derive some strange
pleaseure from rating beginner code at the intermediate, or even
advanced level. I hope this Drive Browser comes in handy or teaches
you something!
