This document will explain how to run .hta (HTML Application) files via the cube.exe (GINA replacement tool).


You can configure IM Gina to launch an .hta by placing the following in the URL:

mshta.exe "C:\full_path_name\appname.hta" 

HTA files are executed by MSHTA.exe instead of IE. You must use the full path name leading to the application.

Please note: This procedure will only work on version 8.1, as version 12 will only allow a URL.
