    I tried but I can't find a way to add any parameters. Seems anything after a space is ignored.

    Hi,

    What if the whole command line is between quotes "..." ?

    If that still not word then as workaround you could open a *.CMD or *.BAT file where the parameters are in. Eventually the batch file can be written on the fly.

    between quotes "..." didn't work but I would try using .bat or .cmd files. I'm quite sure that would do it - good idea...

    It will work with bat file

    opening .bat file should work. i tried that but client don't want that.
    I found one more solution. I created a new file type named ".mayfiletype". Make file of this type open with your exe.
    creat a new file mylink.myfiletype
    Point your pushpin hyper link to your the file of type ".myfiletype"
    like "file://C:/Mappoint/mylink.myfiletype" on clicking the exe takes mylink as the parameter.
    you can rename the file depending upon the parameters you want to pass.
    Am still looking for a optimal solution.

    I fought with this for quite a while.

    If you use <...> around your address, mappoint will include the spaces.

    i.e. <www.Google.com/Yes - This Works>

    Good Luck
