Do you use this page on a webserver or on a local computer? Which browser

When I run it local it works fine until it launches a word (or other

Thanks Paul. After a few more meetings with the client it was

If you want to stick with web approach developing this application, may I
suggest ZZEE PHPExe:

It is a little bit pricy, but allows you to use all HTML, Javascript,
Flash, PHP, SQLite, etc, yet it creates Windows applications.
