I've changed it to NULL instead of 'open'. By passing NULL to the
ShellExecute() API, Windows opens it with the default verb and then the
other verbs (verbs like 'open', 'edit', ...).

I know for executable files this isn't really what you want, but if I
change it to use 'edit', then many others would object.
