Launching files in other applications

I have a client who wants a to create a little application in rev that 
would launch other files on a cd in their various applications (ie quark, 
acrobat, word, etc). I have only done this a few times on the mac in the 
past and its been very very limited. I have seen lots of folks posting 
questions and problems with this in the past on the rev and metacard 

My question is how well is the latest version of Revolution handling file 
launching like this? Has anyone had any big problems lately with it? My 
main concern is the permutation testing with all these applications on 
different versions of Mac and Windoz OSs if this hasn't become a really 
standard feature.
