Hi All,

This is my first post. I think this product is going to be a great one. I've been evaluating several products in the past months and the closest I've come to a path I want to continue on is RightEdge. I spent a bit of time using OpenQuant, but it's really a shame about the lack of support and what I would even call a sense of disdain for the customers because they can't use the product without adequate support. "Adequate" is open to interpretation but I think RightEdge has the right idea and the people to help people make the most of a software product.

That said, I would like to suggest that the Start Up page in version 1.2 follow the "rule" and use the default browser set by the system. Right now it consistently opens Micro$oft Internet Explorer when a link is selected and I would rather not have that browser open. Is there a reason for doing so?

Well, we don't really pick the browser that is opened, we leave it up to the operating system (i.e. we say, operating system, here's a URL, open up a browser).  If you go into file associations for HTML or HTM, you may find that the "open" command is set to iexplore.exe.

Curious about something related to this.

From a command line could you try the command:

start http://www.cnn.com/

Wondering if that is opening in FF or IE.

Good place to start. Thanks

I double checked at the OS level. the default browser is Firefox, and file associations for htm/html are set to open firefox as well. Running 'start http://www.google.com/' opens up google in a firefox window. Yet when I click on a "Recent News" link in the RE start page, I get IE like Momone.

Does RE use an IE based web browser control? This may be the problem.

It is an IE control, yes.
Posted Tuesday March 25 2008
I think IE will only open IE windows.

That's unfortunate.

That's MS.
