Reply to: Opening XHTML file in Xmetal from mapAugust 10, 2012 at 10:11 pm
This is kind of a hack but it seems to work. If I make a copy of the xmetal60.exe file, say xmetal60.copy.exe and then associate .html files with xmetal60.copy.exe the .html links will open from a map. Since I suspect XMetaL is doing instance checking the xmetal60.copy.exe executable never fully opens another instance but the file gets passed back to the original xmetal60.exe.
Now that I know when that external trigger code is I will likely just change how Xmetal handles .html files and not the system. That works better to because IE would always want to reset .html to IE as the default program. Thanks for the help.
