    pushpin hyperlink to user file

    A happy new year to all at first!
    I am using MapPoint 2002 and only wanted to add some photo links to the push pin informations that shall open e.g. MS Photoeditor. A file hyperlink like file:\\C:\Dokumente%20und%20Einstellungen\Administ rator\... etc. does'nt work. How to do it?
    Thank you for suggestions!
    Martin

    Hmm, it should work. At least in the less expensive Microsoft Streets & Trips it works: Pushpin links to files and folders

    Hi Marvin! Thank you for your answer!
    Encouraged that it should work in principle I tried a little bit with the notation and found out that
    file:C:\Dokumente%20und%20Einstellungen\Administra tor\... and
    file:\C:\Dokumente%20und%20Einstellungen\Administr ator\... and
    file:C:/Dokumente%20und%20Einstellungen/Administrator/... and
    file:/C:/Dokumente%20und%20Einstellungen/Administrator/...
    WORKED!

    But notations with
    file://... or file:\\...
    did NOT!

    At least if the file was situated in a path that contained 'space-%20s' in its name.
    Because
    file://c:/file.jpg and file://c:/software/file.jpg
    DID work...

    Strange but that's it!
    Greetings,
    Martin
