programs opening up ie

Post by ronnycopeh » Mon Jan 14, 2008 10:53 pm

I have avant set as my default browser everywhere I know to but there are a few programs like my firewall or others that have link that open up internet explorer its not a real big deal but I like using avant for all web stuff. I just copy the link and place it in avant but I rather it open it up. Is there something I can do?

Try:

Tools > Avant Browser Options > Files And Protocols, and click Set Avant Browser as the default web browser. Make sure you tick every boxes above though (except Avant Browser should check to see whether it is the default web browser) ;)

Edit: I didn't see that you already made Avant your default program. :oops: Did you tick the boxes?

Hello,
It seems like a problem with the other programs.
They're programmed to open links in the Internet Explorer instead of the default web browser.
Anderson (The developer) applied a workaround once in Avant to "catch" all the links, But it've caused a lot of problems and he got it removed (I might be wrong, But I guess it've been removed)
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.

I am using Avant 11.6, Outlook Express 6, and IE 7. I can click on a link in an email in Outlook Express and it will open if in IE 7 if I do not have Avant open. If I have Avant open, clinking on the link does not work at all. Did anyone figure this out? Thanks.
