Hi Todor,

Loading local resources like file://///servername/shareddir/subdir/file should work in IE.

Firefox and Chrome don't allow such links because of security risks. You can find more info here:

There're extensions for Chrome and Firefox that make it possible to use local links:

I hope that helps.



Thank you Alex,

With the suggested extensions and with format file://///servername\sharename\folder\subfolder\file.ext it is working in both FF and Chrome, and even in IE.
