Open MSWOrd documnet


I want to open a MSWord document on the clients PC/MSWord, the solution I
use now is this:
<script language=vbscript runat=Server>
sub OpenDoc(strLocation)
set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objWord.Visible = true
objWord.Documents.Open strLocation
end sub


the document is located on a file server, which accesed thrugh a Virtual
Directory (IIS 5.0) on the web-server
This solution works to some degree, but when the document is opened ists
writeprotected (The VD has full read/write access)
This mean that I cant store any changes I make back to the document on the

After intensive searching on Microsofts pages I foun theese to articles:

They sugest that I should use aboulut adressing: URL =
So that I trigger a service MSDAIPP

sub OpenWord(strLocation)
Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.Open "FP662.DOC", "URL = http://myserver/FILER/KSP/2005/",,,,
end sub

I cant seem to get this working.
Has anyone used this, or does anyone have a soultion??
