Hello.
i have a table with file path and their names and i want to open these files with the correspondent application. Using dde.app_begin i need to give the complete path of the application... and that’s not good! Any one knows how i can do this?

Is there any chance of pass the files to the browser and then the browser/OS open the file with the correspondent application?

Thanks,

Nuno

Then you need to use the client_host command of d2kwutil (6i) or webutil (10g). Search this forum for 'd2kwutil' or 'client_host'.
