[Solved] Win Toolkit Links Open in IE

Thanks to all for the work that went into this awesome project.

Would be nice though if Win Toolkit didn't always open its links in IE.

Thus parts of Win Toolkit are not usable for those not using IE.

And frustrations for those who use IE only as a last resort.

Also, for the Options > Misc tab, would be nice to have a "Start In" folder, instead of having to drill down to your project files every time.

Thanks again!

A "Start In" folder or "Projects Folder" if you like.

When you say go to import an unattended file or browse for an ISO, would be nice to start in your projects folder. Or just remember last used folder.

 

All links for me start with FF and FF is set as default browser (see attached).

 

Thanks

There is one GIS mapping site that stated IE required and only worked with IE, so that is the only reason I have it.  I'll have to see if Chrome browser on Win7 will work for that site -- once I get those installed.

 

All-In-One Integrator remembers what ISOs where already defined, but browse for a new ISO and you are back at My Documents.

Test 13 fixes your issue, it now detects default browser. :)

Fantastic!  Is Test13 a beta version somewhere?

 

Get an IETab extension for firefox.

 

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ie-tab/

Thanks,

From that page:

"About this Add-on

This is a great tool for web developers, since you can easily see how your web page displayed in IE with just one click and then switch back to Firefox."

 

Otherwise, running IE inside another browser just seams so... twisted ? ?

There is also an IE Tab for Chrome if you need it.  This is the one I use.

 

Cheers and Regards

I will definitely be looking for Chrome extenstions.

Thanks

LOL, Sorry, trying to do two things at once.  Links above have been fixed.  It was supposed to have been this. - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ie-tab-classic/miedgcmlgpmdagojnnbemlkgidepfjfi

Thanks.  Their explanation ' justification for running IE -- within another browser -- is also very good (as need be).

Sorry, but still opening in IE.  If go to Win Toolkit's Downloads tab and click on GC or Theme Packs, an IE window opens. 

Using WinToolkit141-29Test_14

Are there any registry settings or configuration files that need to be cleared?

Nothing else opens IE; but might just be my XP or FF install.

Thanks

Oh didn't realize you was on XP. Can yo please go to:

 

regedit > HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Classes > http > shell > open > command

 

Please tell me the value of '(Default)' :)

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -- "%1"

 

P.S. Also try test 15.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\HTTP\shell\open\command\\(default)

>> "C:\PathXOZ\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

I kept as that to test 15 and it worked like a charm!!

Kudos.

NOT HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE but HKEY_CURRENT_USERS lol.

AHHH,

Sorry about that.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\http\shell\open\command\\(default)

>>  "E:\PathXOZ\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "%1"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE was the last one I had used.

Your fix worked regardless.

Thanks
