If the file is local you can simply point a link to the exe file using the file:// protocol, however this will most likely produce a security warning and/or download/open dialog.

Another way would be to link to a file associated with the application, for example for word link to an empty doc file.


Is it possible to launch windows applications (like word, excel, etc.) from Xmenu, without using ActiveX components? Any info on accomplishing this is appreciated.
