Hi there,


We are currently an MFC Client shop but are looking at moving some users over to using OpenClient instead. Currently when we generate a Word, Excel or PDF document we do a client side call to open the Word, Excel or Adobe .exe and pass it the path of the file located on the server. I believe this is not possible when running under OpenClient because of browser security restrictions.


I would like to hear from other users to learn how they do the same thing as described above but in OpenClient. Is it possible or do you have to rely on the viewer only in the browser?

Hi Ross,


All I found possible to do is send a file to the client (for both mfc and open client):  

#Temp = Client.Send($ServerFileName,$LocalFileName)

and only for mfc client execute the file:

IF Session.DisplayType = 'WINDOWS_CLIENT' THEN
   #Temp = Client.Execute($LocalFileName)
The open client will show a button asking the user what to do with it: save or open. it's up to the user to deal with that
