Can clicking a custom schema/protocol launch my app?

Is it possible to launch or refocus my application when a custom schema/protocol is clicked in a browser? (e.g %url%)


This can be done but this is not the job of ExeOutput directly.
See for instructions.

Could this registry key be created in the installation process or via a macro in call in a PHP script? Or would I need to create a custom installation program?


I was able to create a .reg file with the protocol information. I think I’ll create a separate wrapper script to install the program along with the reg file. Here’s .reg source for anyone who’s interested:


"URL Protocol"=""  



@="\"C:\\Path\\To\\My\\App\\myapp.exe\" \"%1\""   

Just change “myapp” and the path and you’re good to go.
