Dear friend,
       when a link on an HTML page is clicked, I want to find the path in the user's machine where the browser is installed. For Netscape, I got it through the function netscape.plugins.
What should I do to get the path in the case of Internet Explorer? Please help.

Thanks,
Rupesh.

Dear rupesh,

         There is no way to find it in the JavaScript. But you can use com.ms.lang package in Java. Thers is a class called RegKey. from that you can get the path of the IE installation path. When hyperlink is clicked you can go to a page where the applet contains the above code is located. Then from that you can get the path and return it o the Javascript. Try

All the best
