Windows Command Code Resolved

Just to close the loop on my earlier question....
Chipp and I walked through on the phone the use of the "start"
command in the Win shell and for some reason, it worked fine. I think
I was enclosing the file name in quotation marks earlier and when I
took them out, voila!
So the bare-bones version of this is simplicity itself:
if the platform is "Win32" then
put "start" && the eBookContents of this stack into openCmd
put "open" && the eBookContents of this stack into openCmd
put shell (openCmd) into shellResult
Lots of error-checking and other stuff to add, of course, but this
gets me to the next level.
I appreciate everyone's help, esp. Jonathan, who went way above and
beyond and, of course, Chipp.
