Wildfire browser & Adobe acrobat

If I link to a URL in a WF note which includes an Adobe pdf I don't get the
link. Is there a way to setup acrobat in the wf browser or make Internet
Explorer the browser of choice?
Thanks

Is there a way to setup acrobat in the wf browser or make Internet : Explorer the browser of choice? : Whose version of Java are you using? The Pro/e browser is pretty much tied to the Windows implementation of Java. All the file handling, preview and other screen presentation stuff are run from Java script files. If there's any incompatibility, it might show up in difficulty handling references to loading external programs, like Acrobat. But the Pro/e browser is home grown, not related to IE in any way, that I can tell. And no, I don't think there's any way to replace browsers.

Probably I should shut up but *usually* that's not how it works. Most companies use the IE dll's and just put their own pretty pictures on top. That's how an Autocad install can trash your entire system :-(
If PTC *is* using the Windows Java they should be shot. Windows Java is not Java, which even the courts have recognized and forced Microsoft to change. There's absolutely no point to Java if you have a different one for every platform - which MS immediately recognized and tried to subvert by co-option. As usual, Microsoft also should be shot.
Guess I should install Wildfire (on Irix) and see what they did. We don't have to put up with that Microsoft swill in SGI-land :-)

Sorry! Problem solved. Pro was blocked from the net and was loading local files only. I'm just gettin' slow & stupid.
