eD2k web links are not added to eMule
If eD2k web links are not added to eMule when clicked on in the Internet Explorer,
the special eD2k link format is not correctly associated. Check the eD2k Links
button in Preferences -> General. If the button is inactive (greyed
out) then some entries in Window's registry are messed up. Download this
tool (by Resterampe) and remove the old association, then press the eD2k
Link button again.
These registry entries are responsible for the web link format:
Data: "Path to emule.exe(with quotes!)" %1
same as above
Opera 7.2x and above
Run eMule. In Opera go to File -> Preferences -> Programs and paths
-> Protocols and press the Add button. In the upcoming dialog
enter ed2k in the Protocol field and the path to eMule automatically
appears in the Open with default application. If it does not, the correct
path to the eMule.exe will have to be provided in the Open with other application
Older Opera versions:
To allow weblinks to work from Opera, a configuration file in Opera's installation
folder has to be edited. Quit Opera and open either one of the files in an editor,
Add the line TrustedExternalURLProtocols=ed2k under [User Prefs]
in the file Opera6.ini and safe it.
For Opera 7.x add the same line in the file OperaDef6.ini.
You will need a special plugin to associate different link formats like eD2k
to the Mozialla or Firefox browser. Get mozex
link), open your browsers preferences and enter
in the eD2k edit box of the mozex plugin.
e.g.: C:\ProgramFiles\eMule\emule.exe %r
