Executing windows binary files maybe disabled on some server environments. If you are able to, try using the full path to the file. You will need to use / forward slashes for the path.

For security reasons this is probably disallowed. If you need to create a PDF file checkout dompdf in the wiki.

Also... since it's running on the server, if the app does open... it's on the server, not the client. So if you were expecting it to open notepad on your client machine, you could be waiting a very very very long time.

CodeIgniter removed the percent sign 20 for spaces you need to use them for spaces.

It's file://laptop/My Documents/FileSchemeURIs.doc Like so
