I am after launching my applcation when a html link in a webpage is clicked.

Ie link = <a href="Yoda:\\245252537764774636.sw">

When clicked it will bring up my program Yoda and then allow the 245252537764774636.sw to added into something? in the program.

I think I found a way to do it using this code I discovered on another website but have no idea how to create a key in HKEY_Classes_ROOT with VB6 or Inno setup which is the installer I am using for my end users.

----
in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT you need a new key (ill call it junk)

[HCR \ Junk]
default="My testing Junk"
URL Protocol = ""

[HCR \ Junk \Shell\Open\Command]
default="C:\Program Files\Test\\myapp.exe"
----


HELP! Please

Thx In Adv
