Follow Link not working

I have the following code works on some computer and on others it doesn't work... no errors just nothing happens.  Any ideas?

    Dim StrFilename As String
    StrFilename = "\\mv\public\Ocular\Chart.pdf"
    Application.FollowHyperlink StrFilename

I am running this code on a onclick event on a form... its working on most computer but not on all.  I'm not sure why.  I've checked security settings and they all seem the same (Low) and I've modified the registry to avoid the hyperlink warning.  Any suggestions?
