In Windows you can create a shortcut to the Internet Explorer executable and then after the path add a web address you'd like the browser to open to. For example, the shortcut path would look like:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.google.com/
I'd like to do something similar in Excel with a hyperlink in a cell. I have a portable version of VLCPlayer in the root of my flash drive and an Excel document further in the drive. I'd like to point to the EXE of the portable VLC and then specify a path to a video file it should open. In the desktop shortcut example above, my shortcut would look something like:
Does anyone know if this is possible or of another way to accomplish this? I can't depend on the user having VLC player installed, so I need to point to the portable EXE included on the flash drive.
