|Can a web page link start/open Microsoft Messenger|
| 3:14 pm on Nov 6, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Assuming a PC has Messenger installed and working...
Can a text link in a web page be used to start and/or open Microsoft Messenger..?
I am looking to put a link into a web page with a "click to start messenger" message in it.

I know that you can embed ActiveX to gain access to the Msg API using .Net, and it may be possible to launch it that way. Check msdn.microsoft.com for more info!

are you looking for a live chat/support kinda applicaton? In which case I'm sure you can find some open-source non IM solutions...
just two cents.
