I am trying to launch a local HTML file with UFT in google chrome. I am using the below code to launch

SystemUtil.Run "chrome.exe","C:\Profiles_Export.html"

But the url entered is missing a colon. hence, due to incorrect url, the page is not launched.
It is launched as "c/Profiles_Export.html"
I have used the same code in another machine and it is working fine there. so, this doesnt seem like a code issue. Can anyone let me know what is going wrong here.

What I have tried:

I tried to launch with
SystemUtil.Run "chrome.exe"
Browser("brwChrome").Navigate "C:\Profiles_Export.html"

But this also results in general error in first line.

"But this also results in general error in first line."
What is the exact text of the error message? And also, where is this script code running?

Hi, exact error is just "General error occured". there is no other explanation mentioned in error popup. I am running this code in UFT

Sorry, but I do not know UFT, what is it?

No Problem, it is an automation testing tool which uses VbScript language.

OK, I just Googled and I think you should be asking your question at UFT One Help Center[^].

The path to the file needs to be specified in URI format, even for local files. Your file should be specified like this:
SystemUtil.Run "chrome.exe","file:///C:\Profiles_Export.html"

* This is assuming SystemUtil doesn't do something weird to the arguments being passed to the command being launched.

I think you have an extra forward slash there, Dave.
