Opening File URL with Arguments

0 votes

I would like to set a file URL (Properties\Data\URL) to open a Windows Programm with Arguments.

For example: file://C:\Projects\ABC.exe AA=1 BB="Second Parameter"

So far I can only manage yed to open the Program (without Arguments). But when I enter the Arguments, nothing happens anymore when I click F8.

Is it possible at all, and if so, what do I need to do?

Thank you very much for your help

feature I also waiting for!
Unfortunately, chances are very, very low for that to be included in yEd.

The "Go to URL" action is not meant to start arbitrary applications and thus it is not possible to start applications with parameters.
