Does any one know a way to call a http link from within proIV 4.6 to kick of a browser and pass a parameter to the browser.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :-"

Hi,

Its nothing special...

If you put no path on the 'EXPLORER' bit, then it will try to find that executable in your $PATH.

So you can put any file name there, that is within your $PATH var in your O/S.

In Windows, the default PATH is always set to include C:\WINDOWS, which is where the link EXPLORER is.

To find out your $PATH, just go into DOS, and type 'set'. It will list all env vars, including $PATH.

You can also type this:
echo %PATH%

Which will only return the contents of PATH and not all your system variables..
