    Hyperlink to an exe file

    DrinaBoFina

      Hello

       

      I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried to use a hyperlink to open another program altogether, and if they were successful in doing so?

       

      I can get it to start the program when I push the link icon on the hyperlink panel in InDesign, but when I export it as an interactive PDF it doesn't work. It is an .exe on a shared drive, as it will need to work for several other people within the company.

       

      I've removed any %20 from the file name, as this was the solution for someone else (due to gaps) and both ways it just comes up with a web page saying not available.

       

      Does anyone have any suggestions? (and yes Microsoft Word does it so I believe Adobe can too).
