.net – Opening default web browser

.netbrowservb.netwinforms

I am using the function below to open the user's default web browser.

 Public Function ShowHelp(ByVal url As String) As System.Diagnostics.Process
    Dim startInfo As New Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo()
    startInfo.FileName = url
    startInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Maximized
    Return System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(startInfo)
 End Function

A couple of times the function returned the error (on users machine) "the system cannot find the file specified"

I guess the user has not set a default web browser.
Why i get this error? How could i add a default web browser check before calling this function?

Best Solution

 Private Sub helpRichTextBox_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkClickedEventArgs) Handles helpRichTextBox.LinkClicked
        System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(e.LinkText)
    End Sub
