Hyperlink from intranet web page to local files on my computer - PHP Development

    Default Hyperlink from intranet web page to local files on my computer

    I'm creating a company intranet, and every employee has certain
    program we want them to be able to run from it, meaning we want the
    link to the program to be on the intranet page. For example, Adobe
    Photoshop resides on all the employees computer under "C:\Program
    Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Photoshop.exe"

    However, when I enter that as a hyperlink on the page, it does not run
    the program.

    Is there a way to get a web page to run a program on the local host?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Hi!
     
    Luckily not. What about I put a link to YOUR "format c:\" on my
    webpage?

    Some signed Java Applet or ActiveX thing might do it.

    <a
    href="file:///C:/Program%20Files/Adobe/Photoshop%207.0/Photoshop.exe">Photos
    hop</a>

    You will still get a security warning window.
