Use fopen

In order to know if it worked or not you have to test the return value of fopen()

#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
FILE *fp;
fp=fopen("c:\\1.txt","r+");
if( fp == NULL)
   printf("file not found\n");
else
   printf("Success!\n");
fclose(fp);   
return 0;
}

That's the point of the program, to tell you whether the file was opened successfully.

Please note that we're not going to write your program for you. You asked a specific question and got a specific answer. Now it's up to you to ask more specific questions or apply what you've learned in this thread to your actual program.

You asked the wrong question at the beginning of this thread. Why didn't you say that in the first place, we can't read your mind. You need to use this function to launch Notepad.exe

thanx.....
