Hi,

I want to run an external program from
php like this:
?>
<a href="C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Acrobat"><?php echo
$row[8]; ?></a>
<?php

This marks file as link but doesen't run Acrobat..

Thanks in advance, Robert...;)

Oh boy Robert, you have an awful lot to learn. the <a href...> part is
HTML, it is nothing to do with php. HTML is interpreted by your
browser. php runs on the server and so it has no way of opening
acrobat on your client (a PC, tablet, phone, ...).

If you check the documentation for HTML (there is lots around on the
internet), you will never find anything that says that you can put
such a link in there. At best, you could have your client configured
such that, if say a .pdf file is delivered by the browser, it will
launch Acrobat, but that is dependant on the set up of your machine
(and influenced by the headers sent by the server).

And be aware that having the ability to execute code on a client machine
is something that is designed OUT of browsers for security reasons.


Javsacript is as good as it gets, or the ability to launch a plugin or
third party app top deal with some downloaded data.
