    fwiw, I really don't think you can do this. 'cause when you type in "localhost", you're actually sending an HTTP request to the server. When you double click a document in windows, it just opens the document using the associated filetype.

    You /might/ try associating the filetype with your webserver, but I doubt that will actually work. Beats a bloody scalp...

    I remember back in my perl days installing perl execuable on my windows system if I assigned perl.exe to .pl files and double-clicked them in explorer perl would go ahead and execute them.

    I beleive it was something like perl.exe %s
    Thanks,
