I am currently working on putting a website www.unescobkk.org\ict on a CD or DVD. The site uses php but it seems to work well after export in regards of showing ordinary pages. But even though the different pdf files were downloaded and the links to them are correct nothing happens when I click on the links. I have tried to copy the shortcut and paste the url into the adress line and then it works fine. So the link should be ok, but still it does not work. The links also work when I click on them in offline explorer before exporting the files.
An example of such a pdf file can be found at http://www.unescobkk.org/index.php?id=1807
Greatly appreciate if anyone can help me out.
Did not help though. Now all links are like that...
Have tried to make new links in dreamweaver just to check and they do not work either when it is pdf files. Strange things. Glad if you have suggestions since we need to present this CD to our funders in short time...
Another point is that if I make links to pages or files that do not exist the links behave in the same way as the links to the PDF file-links. Maybe explorer think they do not exist, but as I mentioned earlier the links are ok when pasted into the adress bar.

One way to try is to export in an HTML Help file (.CHM). This will make your CD browseable on all Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, 2003 systems. Only Windows 95 and NT 4.0 will be unable to browse the CD without installing HTML Help package first.
Would this work?
Thanks for helping me. Really appreciate it!

I`ll try the .exe solution in the meantime.
Both my computers just decided to crash at the same time (and the air-con isn`t doing to well either) so I had to do the whole thing over again, but the second time it worked and I`m so happy about it! Still have to check if the databases work but those are not that important.
I have one more question though... Will this exe file work on computers that do not have any software from your company installed? The point here is that we need to make some copies for distribution to rural organizations without internet connection, and they will probably use quite old OSs too.
Do you think it will work fine?
