Hello,

I want to start an .exe application with some parameters (e.g. MSaccess20.exe /user=Tester) out of the Netscape Navigator. How can I manage this without any additional prompts for the users.

You cannot start an application on another machine... This is a security feature.  But, if you try to DL a .DOC file from the net & have Word installed (IE) it will automatically open in IE... There is nothing like that for NS... The only option is to have them save the file locally and then open it...

Or, you could write an ActiveX or a plugin then have that do it for you... But, they would have to accept the ActiveX to be installed.
