    Open with IE only

    Hi,

    I have a .HTA application. Hta is an unknown file type for mozilla, it's a MS html application file type. Someone know any way for redirect to IE the .HTA application in question when the default browser is not IE, for example Mozilla?


    All the best.

    if there’s no IE installed, you cannot “redirect” to it. the only thing you can do is check, whether the browser is IE or not (e.g. IE doesn’t accept the "application/xhtml+xml" MIME type).

    If I have an IE installed (it is possible unstall the IE???) but the default browser is Mozilla or another can I redirect the .HTA application to be opened in IE? Javascript code?

    All the best

    there are OS that don’t have IE to begin with (all *NIX).

    if you serve a special MIME type, you should be able to configure Mozilla to call IE to open it.
