  • An error since v5.5

    When creating links to web sites etc, if you do not specify a file as in index.htm, index.html etc, the site will not open. On many links I have just an IP address to specific hardware devices like http://10.10.10.1 and it does not contain index or anything. If I manually open IE and type in http://10.10.10.1 - CONNECTS Successfully, just not from within Hyena?

    I can't seem to duplicate this as it works fine for me.

    Do you have a server on the public side of the Net that I can try this with? Or any sites that you know of that you have the same problem with?

      Pretty much any site - e.h. http://www.google.ca

      If I change it to http://www.google.ca/index.html then it works like it should.

        Out of curiosity, what happens if you go to Start->Run and type in:

        iexplore http://www.google.ca

        Does that work?

        Also, can you send a screen shot of how you have one of these configured in Object Manager to [email protected]?

          Just sent the email and yes, from the run command, shortcuts etc, everything works like a charm - It is just in Hyena where the issue resides.

            There havn't been any changes in Hyena in the last release to how urls are handled. Hyena uses the ShellExecute Windows API to simply send the url (path) that you have entered to Windows...Windows decides what to do with the command based on its own internal logic. You can enter any legal Windows command for the 'url' if you wish.

            There seems to be a problem in your environment somehow that is interfering with Explorer's handling of the url. I assume that you can see the url clearly in the address bar in Explorer, so there isn't anything that Hyena can do to resolve this problem. It may also just be a bug in Explorer.
