I'm building a testing/training application in HTML, to be displayed using MSIE. All the files are local (i.e., I'm using MSIE/HTML as my engine, but nothing's actually going across the net). I need to call a testing app from my HTML, and pass it a parameter. Calling the app is easy, using
HREF = "c:\\......tester.exe".
However, I can't find a way to pass the app a command line parameter. I've tried HREF = "...tester.exe?parameter" and HREF = "...tester.exe parameter" to no avail.
tester.exe is a small Visual C++ app. Calling it from the Win95 run command with a parameter (e.g. tester.exe parameter) works fine.
Thanks for your help.
I'm giving this 100 points, although I suspect that it is either very easy, or fairly difficult.
