Layer properties, Action list schould open an application when click on "Actions" in the identify results box of an object in the vector layer.
On windows systems, registrated applications (like ie, firefox, office applications) won@t open. The capture output box shows the message "Unable to run command C:\\Programme\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe http://www.gis-schweich.de/mapserver_schweich_online/"

To resolve the problem, I@ve tried the "openurl" method (Ticket 1514), but there was no success.

When I run application without entries in the windows registy, the application starts without problems, p.e. FezillaFTP. (capture output message: Starting "C:\\Programme\\FileZilla FTP Client\\filezilla.exe"...

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

It ist not really a problem. You have to set the path to the exe file into double paranthese.

The right action command is:

"C:\\Programme\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe" http://www.gis-schweich.de/mapserver_schweich_online/

Then it functions.
