Open URL in Window is not opening files on fileshare

I am trying implement a solution to open Excel file from a Link on a UI. Following are the steps taken and is not working.


  1. On a section rule, got a Link with Click event and Action to Open URL in Window.


Tried the following URLs and it is NOT working:


             file://LPHILNW7US/TaskList/MasterTaskList_20160804.xlsx - local file share


file://rpega.com/netdrives/Idrive/Project Office/Key Goals/Key Goals 2000/Done.xls – file on Pega network drive


But when I use http URL (eg. http://www.google.com), it opens up the URL on a browser window.


  2. The Open URL in Window action has the Activity with Show-HTML method with HTMLStream.


  3. The HTMLStream has the following:


       <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=<%=tools.getParamValue("OpenFile")%>">


  4. When tried running the application, it opens up a blank browser window.
