I load a signed applet in a web application.
The applet have to open a xls file. The scene is the next:
- Create the Workbook and the sheet of Workbook
- Open the Workbook:
String[] commands = { "cmd", "/c", "start","EXCEL.EXE", ROUTE_FILE };
Process proc = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(commands);

It works in all browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari...) except in Firefox.
(I test it with Office 2007 and it works, but now I've Office 2010 and it not works)

This is the error message in the java console:

Java Plug-in 1.6.0_27

I thoughth that excel sheet .xls is missing in your program so JVM is giving file not found exception. For Excel programming with Java, use Apache POI for reading/accessng Excel sheets in Java.
