Hi there

How can I put together a solution whereby I am able to trigger a 'shell execute' of a file on a network share/UNC path/local location from inside a browser via Javascript?

I just want to open the file with the local native associated application, in this case a word .doc / .docx.

I have a dashboard where I need to open up a file to check from it's location, then save it in the same location.

I have the full path available as a variable, and am familar wih PHP, Javascript etc.

Thanks in advance!
