The syntax for the command line to launch the Viewer application(MVIEWER2.EXE) with a title is as follows:
   MVIEWER2.EXE title.mvb		
where "title.mvb" would be replaced with the filename of the title to beopened.

To start Viewer at a particular topic within a title, the -i command-lineoption can be used. This is the syntax for the -i command-line option:
   MVIEWER2.EXE -i context_string title.mvb		
where "context_string" would be replaced with the context string of thetopic to be initially displayed. The -i switch is most useful for testing.

To cause a title to always open at a given topic, you can use the CONTENTS=option in the .MVP file.
