Hyperlinking to local executable files from shapes within a process maps must follow the workaround below.
Instead of linking directly to the EXE file, link to a CMD file that resides on the server, using a full path. This command file just calls the EXE file, also using its full path. For example:
Create a VDX file with a shape that contains a hyperlink with an address:
(a relative hyperlink does not translate properly in the published HTML)
When you select the hyperlink, the CMD file launches RunWinWord.cmd:
RunWinWord.cmd contains a single line: call "D:\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\WINWORD.EXE"
