How to start executable with parameter on ms windows?

Asked by MichaelD

I have backup iso images of some of my collection DVDs on multiple drives. ...and they change because I need to move them from time to time (space problems).
From Griffith I would like to call an application with the filename of the image. The app should look for it on all drives and start it.
The problem is, I can call an application from within Griffith by using the "Site" or "Trailer" fields and creat a "fake" html address like "file://myapp.exe". But I can't transfer any parameter to this myapp.exe. Griffith just doesn't execute the "address". I assume that an internal error is created but I don't get any error message so I don't know why.
Any ideas? ...besides setting up an html server and writing some cgi?

You can't give any parameters. The complete trailer entry is interpreted as a filename.
The only way I think is that you associate your application which should look for the iso with the extensions of your files.

Yep, this would be an idea!
Why didn't I come up with this myself <sigh>
Thanks, your help is appreciated!
