Hallo,

I try to add a link to a note, which should open a program and pass certain arguments to the program.

Example link: C:\Projects\ABC.exe AA=1 BB="Second Argument"

This line works in windows shell, but no matter how I enter it in the Mindmanager Link Window, I can't get it to work.

When I enter the Arguments in the link itself, it says the link has an error as soon as I click on it.
When I enter the Arguments in the Advanced\Arguments it starts my program, but does not send any arguments at all to it.
file:/// does also not change anything

How can I make Mindmanager open a file link with arguments?

Thank you very much for your help!

Links in MindManager are hyperlinks.

The links have been hyperlinks for many years now.

You may consider a Macro for that purpose.
