Opening Navision with finhlink

GoMaDGoMaD Member Posts: 313
Hi,

We have a server here with multiple navision servers running on it.

I've used the hyperlink functionality to create a shortcut per databaseserver on my desktop.

I receive an error saying "TCP/IP error ECONNREFUSED", after clicking on OK we can connect without problem.

I've checked the services and hosts files and all is entered in the correct way.

I also checked the registry for the finhlink path and everything looks ok.

Does anybody have an idea what's going wrong, or should i create a shortcut in the old fashioned way.

Regards,
Now, let's see what we can see.
...
Everybody on-line.

Looking good!

    I used to create link directly:
    Fin.exe ID=<path to zup file> SERVER=<servername>

    Hí everybody

    Try this if you are using windows XP PROFESIONAL SERVICE PACK 2 and other Windiwos versions:

    Run regedit and find the key:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell\open\command]

    Remove the double backslash so that there is only single backslash in the
    path to finhlink.exe

    Desktop shortcuts and email links should work again. If you use group policies you could then roll this change out to all machines. Otherwise just create a .reg file that people load into their machines.


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision]
    "URL Protocol"=""
    @=&quot;URL:Navision Protocol"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\DefaultIcon]
    @=&quot;C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision\\Client\\finhlink.exe"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell\open]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell\open\command]
    @=&quot;C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision\\Client\\finhlink.exe "%1""


    after the change


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision]
    "URL Protocol"=""
    @=&quot;URL:Navision Protocol"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\DefaultIcon]
    @=&quot;C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision\\Client\finhlink.exe"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell\open]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell\open\command]
    @=&quot;C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision\\Client\finhlink.exe "%1""
