I use this:

;;; w32-shellex.el --- Windows 95/NT Explorer Shell-based program/file

;; Author: Theodore A. Jump (address@hidden)
;; Maintainer: taj /
;; Keywords: NTemacs

(defconst w32-shellex-version "$VER: 1.6.4 (1999-11-10 11:39:59(-0600))")

with slightly modified key bindings.  Actually, I think there is more than
one package around that provides similar functionality, but this is the one
I use.  As you can see, it's been around for a while.  It does essentially
what opening a document under Windows would do.  It still works under
Windows XP and, for example, it opens a .pdf file in Adobe Reader.  I just
tried it to make sure!
