Open file in its associated program

There is a hyperlink to files. If the link is clicked the file should be opened in associated program.

For example if the link is a doc file then MS word should be open and doc file should be displayed.
Any help..?

As long as your clients have the proper applications installed with the proper file associations it should work. I have links to files and they all open up properly in their respective apps.

I want to Open MS word application and open the word document in it. All clients will have MS word loaded in their machine.

Similarly if it is a excel file, then I want to open the MS Excel and open the excel spread sheet in excel.

I used this code to call doc file. In the task manager the winword.exe is running but there is not word application opens.

Process myProcess = new Process();
string myDocumentsPath =
myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = myDocumentsPath + "\\Doc1.doc";
//myProcess.StartInfo.Verb = "Print";
//myProcess.StartInfo.cre = true;
Looks like it is hung.

As the others said above, all you have to do to open a file is to point the URL of a window to the file you wish to open on the server.  If the user has the application associated with that file on their machine it will open automatically.  You do not need to deal with processes..

It is showing me with dialog box to open , save , cancel. I don't want to see this dialog box,instead I want to open word, and load the file.

Even If I select Open dialog box it will open in IE window, but I don't want to happen.

just a though about this. Did you try messing with your IE security settings. Maybe you have it set somewhere in there to prompt when opening a file instead of just opening it. Try taking a look at that under the IE menu bar --> tools --> Internet Options
Let me know what happens

Open web page in IE and populate fields on the form from my web form
To the dot net Knights.  Many humble thanks in advance from a dot net surf. We have an vb application that opens multiple instances of IE object, each to different web pages.  It then takes information from the current record in the app, populates fields on each of the web pages, and them submits the forms.  We are then able to look at the resulting web pages and quickly get the info we're looking for.This prevents us from having to manually navigate to each web site, enter the same information and then wait for the page to open.  If there is ...

Implementing .Net Form into an web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the sa...

I am working on have a project with 35 web forms and an access file with 18 tables.Until now I have defined the oledbadapters in every form by dragging the tables from the server explorer tool box.This is not a good idea because every time that I make a change on the database design I have to drag the new definition on 35 web forms and I have to create the datasets again.

Reading Excel Files from a .Net Web Form
Hi, This might be a dumb question, but ... When reading an Excel file from a .Net Web Form, is it necessary to have Microsoft Excel actually installed on the client machine running the web form? Also, do the Excel files being read need to be saved as "values only" or can the values be extracted from a spreadsheet where the cells contain formulas? Thanks. -Wayne Hi, For the 1st part, Office is not necessary to be installed. But Download the Office XP PIAs and use them to develop Office XP solutions with Visual Studio .NET.
