>  You can use ShellExecute. 

ShellExecute (and CreateProcess) create a *new* process (if file is an
executable that is.)  The posix exec family replaces the executable
image of the running process.  Very different models...

BTW If you want to spawn a new process on Win32 then I'd suggest to
use CreateProcess since that does not depend on shell32.dll
