Windows application is not opening in microsoft edge using javascript (same code works in IE) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have created C++ windows desktop application which we invoke in our website using javascript code..

    window.location.assign("applicationname: -d " + id )

    applicationname : it's the installed application registry name.

    above code works in IE, Chrome, Firefox and Safari..

    but not in microsoft edge.

    if I uninstall the application and hit above code, pop comes up to check the application in microsoft edge, but if I install it and invoke above code,

    page only gets refreshes..

    it just gives me below info and warning :

    1. HTML1300: Navigation occurred.
    2. HTML1527: DOCTYPE expected. Consider adding a valid HTML5 doctype: "!DOCTYPE html>".

    same works perfectly fine in IE. 

    Please provide a solution asap as we have promised to support our web application on Microsoft edge too..
