    I’m trying to use a mouseclick action to launch a program. It should run a virtual tour inside of a player. I can’t get it to actually DO anything, even though the action looks set up correctly? I uploaded it to the course as an attachment, but I am not sure it can run from the .exe file? It is currently set up on my hard drive, not an html. Do I need the entire path? Or?

    The actual file here is unimportant; this is a test course to make sure I can get it to work – which so far I cannot.

     

    Thanks.

    I haven’t needed to do this, but why not just try using the full path and see if that matters?

    Note that I would expect this to fail in all browsers for security reasons, so don’t do this unless your course will only run from people’s local storage (hard drives).

    The help documentation reads “specify the fully qualified file name in the File field” which makes me want to agree with Carl
