For opening a registered file under control of your Delphi program, you can use the Windows API-function ShellExecute. You have to specify the path of that file as one of the parameters of the function. Now here's the trick: if instead you pass a URL, your default web-browser is opened with that URL. Example:
ShellExecute(Handle, 'open', PChar('http://www.festra.com/'), nil, nil, SW_SHOW);
By the way, that same function can also be used for running an external application, opening a folder, printing a file, and so on.
