Hi Matthias.
I have an online map with placemarks each displaying a link for more information which is located on the user's CD (the user is instructed to have the CD already loaded.) Seems to be a simple idea. Works in the development local mode, ie, Frontpage not a browser.  Here is the xml code:   CDLink="<a href="D:\Current Docket Information\North\S08 Backgrounds/S08 N2001.pdf">Application</a>"

Thank you
Chris

If you are using some client-side Java, you could probably loop through available disks and try reading for a specific file that the CD holds for certain. If it succeeds, you can be quite sure you have the right drive letter.

Hi Matthias,

I am familiar with basic, very basic java script. My application is browser based. Would you know, or no where tofind a code example that loops through a computer's harddrive to find a certain file using a browser?
Thank you fro your help.

You would need to use a trusted Java applet for example, or JScript or VBScript with ActiveX objects.

Kind regards,
