[quote=_Doon] [quote=teK]I'm looking for a way to execute external programs by clicking on a link[/quote] I've done this for years with a program called [b]run: Protocol handler[/b]. I've used it to create a program browser / launcher using basic html. It should allow you to launch a [i]local[/i] executable in any browser via a URL without any 'open' prompts. The author's site is down at the moment but the archived page for the program is here: http://web.archive.org/web/20081220233559/http://www.blackbit.net/node/6 The download link from there does not work but the "manual link" does (note the security code section, and contrary to what the page says it didn't require any .net framework on my Win98 PC). It doesn't seem to be available online anywhere so I've uploaded my copy of the program if you're interested, I guarantee it's integrity, for whatever that's worth (solid gold, btw). http://www.datafilehost.com/download-c2c3df25.html (cookies required) [quote=teK]If not, is it possible to handle a protocol without registering it in the system registry ?[/quote] My guess: not unless a macro could do it. The run protocol handler sets up a protocol in the registry. [quote=teK]Or may a k/plugin exist, allowing this kind of stuff ?[/quote] It's easy to launch an executable with a simple macro, but that requires a button, menu item, or hotkey as far as I know. I've explained how to do so in the following thread: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?1,96463,97725#msg-97725 (with all due respect to JamesD an his examples :[i][/i])[/quote]
