Error opening a file with system.net.openURL

I have an error trying to open a file with the function system.net.openURL
My code is:

filePath='C:\Users\l.abdallah.ext\Desktop\20201120_134830_AlarmStatusTable.xlsx'

system.net.openURL("file:" + filePath)

Error:

java.io.IOException: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "command.com": CreateProcess error=2, , The system cannot find the file specified

Ignition 8.0.12
Windows 10 x64

Thanks you

Try escaping your backslashes, python. Right now it’s reading your filePath as:
C:\Users\l.abdallah.ext\Desktop�01120_134830_AlarmStatusTable.xlsx

filePath='C:\\Users\\l.abdallah.ext\\Desktop\\20201120_134830_AlarmStatusTable.xlsx'
print filePath
>>> C:\Users\l.abdallah.ext\Desktop\20201120_134830_AlarmStatusTable.xlsx

Also, I believe you need double forward slashes after file:.

filePath='C:\\Users\\l.abdallah.ext\\Desktop\\20201120_134830_AlarmStatusTable.xlsx'

system.net.openURL("file://" + filePath)

thanks for the answer guys, but I still have the problem. :expressionless: :expressionless:

Try a simpler path, like c:\\temp\\new.txt

i think it’s java problem
