1) (and it's and big ONE)
I intend to run software from the HTML/Browser environment from the
client end, at the moment I expect to incorporate excel file, basic
file and Visual basic .exe files. I expect the client to have excel
and qbasic (or something similar), but not VBasic. I have worked out
how to run both excel and quick basic from my browser (although the
method isn't perfect). I have been able to run my vbasic file using
the following in netscape (2.0b3) perferences:
apllication/vb1 calc.vba c:\homepage\calc.vba
This works fairly well until I leave the program and then return,
when I click on the program I am trying to run, half of it loads then
it tells me:
can't find helper application
When I look in the perferences the following is in the applications
And when I remove the quotation marks it runs just fine, until I
exit and return to the same situation.
Also when I start up a second excel file from the browser it starts up
a second copy of excel! Can I get my second .xls to run in the
original copy of excel that's already been started.
I hope my question is suitable for this list and that I am not asking
something which is easily answered on some unreachable FAQ.
