    Thumbs up New Here, Need a little help...

    Hi All...

    Wonder if someone can point me in the right direction with this problem.
    Don't know a massive amount about Javascript but I'm learning so here goes...

    Firstly I wanted to find a way to launch an .exe file from disc via a webpage found this in the form of Launch in IE, for those not familiar with it, click here >>> http://www.whirlywiryweb.com/q%2Flaunchinie.asp

    This works very well & was easy to set up etc, the javascript is below...

    Code:
    <html>
    
    <script language="JavaScript">
      function launchApp(strCmdLine)
      {
        var obj = new ActiveXObject("LaunchinIE.Launch");
        obj.LaunchApplication(strCmdLine);
    
      }
    </script>
    
    <body>
    
    <a
    href="javascript:launchApp('f:\\myprog')">
    myprog Off Disc!</a>
    
    </body>
    
    </html>
    Simple & I understand that this works on my machine as F = my cd rom, but what I need to know is... Is there anything I can replace f:\\ with or add to any of the above so it will run on anyones machine???

    Hope This Makes Sense...
    Cheers In Advance

    You need to use a prompt to ask them what their drive is.
