Should be an action from the System object. I was going to look into it myself a while ago but haven't had time yet.

You'll find this option in the file object, which makes sense ;)

Add the file object to your project and use the action "Execute file". This action expects a valid path to any file.

Example (uses the file object and the common dialog object):
+ System: Start of layout
-> CommonDialog: Show open dialog
+ CommonDialog: File dialog: OK
-> File: Execute file CommonDialog.FirstSelectedFile
