I think that is best. Since you are looking for the specific missing 
fixture, that could be fixed in future versions/Installations. Also you 
might consider suppling with your application installation a most simple 
"explorer.exe" that does exactly what you need. If it is to display a 
folder, look in codeproject.com they have a sample. Contact me off list 
I have a couple of hours work on top of that sample.

I've looked and did not find other names for it. 
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe is probably it.
You also have the shell= in registry but that is not Necessary it.
also you have the public Window class: ExploreWClass => EXPLORER.EXE 
(look in MSDN)
