In org-mode (note I am running Windows), when creating a link using C-c C-l, using the following path loads my email software when clicking on the resulting link:
file:c:/Program Files/The Bat!/thebat32.exe
So far, so good.
However, when adding an argument to the executable emacs complains the file does not exist, for example clicking on the resulting link for
file:c:/Program Files/The Bat!/thebat32.exe argument1
yields an error message "No such file". It appears emacs/orgmode is checking if the file exists using an absolute path including the argument, hence not finding it.
Is there any way to properly pass arguments to simple file calls? Or would one need to create a new hyperlink type as described in http://orgmode.org/manual/Adding-hyperlink-types.html?
