make links open with IE and not Avant

Post by oren256 » Thu Jun 05, 2008 4:36 pm

Hi all,

i am using avant at home as my default browser for many years now and very happy.
however at work i must use IE for various reasons......

the thing is that i want to use avant and IE at work but i have the following issue:

i want to have avant open with our web based CRM software because it's much better then IE
but i still want my pc to use IE for any thing else coz that is the default work browser and it works the best with all the internal stuff
but once i open avant on the pc ALL the links ( outlook 2003, word docs, etc) open in avant and not IE.

is there a way to have avant open ( doing what ever i need it to do ) but the pc still using IE for opening hyper links?

avant is NOT set as the default browser for any protocols or actions at the moment.....
thanks !
Oren

When you say it's not set as the default, do you mean in Windows or is everything unchecked at Option > File and Protocols?

hi,

what i mean is that avant is not my default browser, not in it's settings and not in windows

IE is the default browser, however if avant is launched ( first) from the two
then all the links will now open with it till i close it down

if i was to open an IE window first for example all the links will go to IE even if avant is open. but it's not always easy to have in case you don't really need IE that day etc.

i just want to use avant as a "stand alone" program to run our CRM system so i can use IE for my daily browsing with out mixing the two.....

many thanks for helping out

oren

don't think you can stop this as you're correct that windows will send the link to the first browser opened.... will look into it

hi Belazir, thanks for your help
i have found this morning that by installing avant 9.92 build 033 this is not happening ( so far)
i have avant running and when i click any links they still go to IE

so must be something changed in the newer versions.
if you would come up with any thing i`d be happy to hear.

Regards
Oren
