Linking to local files

Recommended Posts

I am trying to link to a file that is local, but i can't seem to get the link to work when the page is located on a server.

Eg: I try open file:///C|/test.exe it won't open if it is running of the sever eg [a href=\"http://localhost\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost[/a], But the url is file:///C|/htdocs/test.html it will then open the file.

Does anyone know a way around to get the to open when it is running of a server?
