Control panel shortcut

Hey guys , I need help creating a control panel shortcut in HTML,
I need it to work from a java menu , here is an example on how links work there: {||Drive D:,file:///D|/,_blank} The highlighted part is the actual link (in this case , opens drive D: ).

someone told me that if i simply write "Control Panel" in the links place it will work ., but all it does is opens an invalid page in C:\Windows\Control Panel.

hmmm, problem! .
I cant use speedyB's example because of its syntax ( it matches the commands syntax in the applet) and i cant use matt's example because i cant put the VB execute command in there without messing up the applet.

any other thoughts?

Yep i'm using the exec() command from your tutorial... but i cant get it to work in the script ( after i replace the link part with exec(blablabla) the applet wont load.

try this..
create a shortcut to C:\WINDOWS\System32\control.exe
name it controlpanel or something
use the vbs method, put in the name of the shortcut.
use exec('controlpanel.vbs')

Thats a good idea , but it dosent work... it loads the applet this time but wont run the script ( it opens a invalid window at C:\WINDOWS\exec('control.vbs') ).

Sorry? what do you mean?
I did add the script in the beginning of the page if you mean that. I think the prob is that it is in a Java applet so it refuses to work.
how did you get yours to work?
