Hyperlink in NAV 2013 Web Client

I've searched everywhere but I can't find the solution for my problem.

I want to create a PDF button that opens a specific PDF file.
I have my PDF files in a specific server, the path is like: \\myserver\myfolder\myfile.pdf

I'm using the Function Hyperlink and I can get the file with RTC but when I try to run the web client it says:
- A server error has occurred, and the content cannot be displayed. Refresh the page or open a new browser window.

I know that I need to specify the path type, so I have: HYPERLINK([url=file://myserver/myfolder/myfile.pdf]file://myserver/myfolder/myfile.pdf[/url]).
Note: The folder is shared.
However the same error appears.

There are 2 curious points..

- If I specify the path just regarding folders, like HYPERLINK([url=file://myserver/myfolder]file://myserver/myfolder[/url], it opens correctly, only when I specify the file it doesn't work (Maybe something related to file extensions)
- If the path type is http it works correctly too.

I don't know if it has something to do with de fin.stx file or it's something else, so I'm asking for help in this matter.

Thank you very much

    The solution I came up with was to use File Management codeunit
    and exportBlob function.

    This will upload the file to the user.
