[[D:/dev::line][code]] stores the link to my code directory. How can i used dired to open it in emacs. Currently with this code explorer opens the directory. I'm using Windows 7.

    I hope that I understand right that D:/dev is a directory. I do not understand what the search ::line means in that case. If D:/dev is a directory you could try (add-to-list 'org-file-apps '(directory . emacs)). You can customize the variable org-file-apps with Options -> Customize Emacs -> Specific Option.... Insert a new Cons cell with INS, First Choice: Links to a directory; Second Choice: Visit with Emacs. I post this as a comment rather than an answer since I am not sure whether I understand right what you are asking. – Tobias Jun 23 '19 at 22:33
  • The search ::line would mean that you jump to a line matching line in the dired buffer (I just tested it, it would work.) In my previous comment I forgot to mention that you need to click on Apply to accept the settings in the Customization buffer for the current session. – Tobias Jun 23 '19 at 22:41
