can't start google chrome with script.


Recommended Posts

The follwing command (I have tried several versions) does not start the browser... the path to chrome.exe is correct (copied from quick launch toolbar). It just does nothing. run in Scite editor gives me no clues... Thanks for any help... Jim

run('C:\Documents and Settings\Jim Mihalski\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe "http:\\www.accuweather.com"', "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

this command with iexplore wokrs fine.

run('C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE "http:\\www.accuweather.com"', "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Hi,

my version of chrome is definitely not installed in "C:\Documents and Settings\Jim Mihalski\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\", but in "C:\Program Files\Chrome\". Please re-check that path - only the fact that there exists a "chrom.exe" doesn't mean it's the main executable.

Regards,

Chris

Chris, I was also suprised at the path.. I did check "program files" not there and I checked the actual path as shown in the script and sure enough chrome.exe is there.... It is the exact Path from more than one goggle chrome shortcuts properties... see attachment...

Juvigy,, Thanks again..

My desired web page:

ShellExecute("chrome.exe", "http://www.accuweather.com/forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&traveler=1&zipChg=1&zipcode=18101&metric=0","","")

Works perfectly.... Danke, Grazie, Merci beaucoup

Problem 2: You need a command line switch for Chrome, you can't just tack on the url after chrome.exe

You, Sir, are a fraud and an impostor.

Joking aside,

C:\Users\Jos\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application>chrome.exe http://www.icanh

this works!
