    Spartan wont open local html file on PC


    Carrying out some testing on my historic sites.
    Remote ie web hosted sites are mainly OK - some but not major errors with iframes.
    I decided to test using stored files on my PC . and get problems I cant open any htm file locally

    I created a very simple html file in notepad saved as spartan.html to desktop

    Code:
    <html>
    
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <title>Just a Spartan desk-top test</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    Just a test
    </body>
    
    </html>
    Right-click open with project spartan gives the following error page:-
    Hmm, we can't reach this page.

    Try this

    • Make sure you’ve got the right URL: ms-appx-web://microsoft.windows.spartan/assets/errorpages/dnserror.html#file:///C:/Users/Unicorn/Desktop/spartan.html
    Copy the file to my NAS server open in explorer Right-click open in projrct spartan and get CORRECT page

    Just a Spartan desk-top test.

    Can anybody please replicate and prove that I have not gone completely insane as I just dont believe they could have released it without someone having tried to open a local html file not hosted on a server of some kind.
    Note all files open locally in IE, firefox opera safari dremweaver etc etc locally other than spartan.

    I can maximise, resize minimise Spartan with no problems here

    Most likely it's a permissions issue. Spartan likely runs in very low privilege mode, and is not allowed to access most locations on the hard disk for security reasons so that if it is compromised, it cannot install malware or viruses.

    Seems very raw to me. I won't be wasting any more of my time on it.

    Closed itself several times

    Favorites Bar unusable - partly obscured, alpha order and I can't see how you are supposed to access entries that aren't on screen.
    Can't drag open page to bar. No rt click action. Can't drag urls to it etc

    Plays clips all by itself.

    No add ons like adblocker. This is a must! No auto logon.

    Maybe I'm the only one who is going to pass on it but if it is not very pleasant to use, testing time is going to be small.

    I've been running win 10 as my main machine since Oct so I am not gun shy and am very supportive in the main.

    Just my opinion - hope others get to try it out a bit more than me.

    Back to Chrome!

    repeat from another post of mine :

    Aside from Spartan behaving more like malware than a browser freezing hanging and
    crashing itself , or hanging the system and the universal mail app requiring a removal
    and re install and crashing randomly without warning when you get it working and the hdd
    and memory I/O performance ,file enumeration (and maybe more ) degradation from win 7,
    8.1 and earlier Windows 10 TP previews ............... what else am I missing here in 10049 ?☺☺

    OTOH 10049 is something new to break and fiddle with........ I can see Spartan being wicked fast when it's sorted out that's the upside hopefully same for the OS although in spite of the I/O degradation it's coming along and feels pretty snappy all in all.

    W10 is the daily driver here now ... I think there is unrealized upside potential at this point ......... it's just not ready for Main st. that's all but that's to be expected at this stage .

    That this is still in TP and there are going to be many bugs until the RTM comes out.. and even then there are going to be bugs. Spartan right now is so early in development it's just not fair to really expect much from it. The other browsers have been out for quite some time and are more refined and developed.

    A number of user were requesting that Spartan be released. I don't know if MS released Spartan earlier than they wanted to satisfy those request or if MS decided that Spartan was ready for testing. Either way Spartan is still in early development. It's going to get better as features are added and bugs get fixed. I for one am glad MS released Spartan for testing. At this point I still don't see Spartan becoming my main browser. This could change as Spartan matures. I'm going to keep testing and make my decision when Windows 10 goes final. Until than I will report any bugs I find to MS.

    Yeah I'm finding Spartan a bit buggy, but when it's running well it seems to be awful fast, I'm going to hang in there and hopefully MS ends up with a very fast browser with a few tricks up its sleeve.

    True it's a TP, Jeff, but that's why we're testing . . . we need to give Microsoft feedback and point out everything we like as well as don't like. And, discussing what's right as well as wrong is what I like to see in these forums. That way I get to know what others are seeing and check accordingly. Also, do they confirm something I think might be wrong.

    As to Spartan, it seems to me Microsoft has been talking about it from the get-go, which should mean it's been in development for quite some time. With the excitement being generated by Microsoft, I would have expected Spartan to be a bit more mature, but what the hey; as you say . . . Although not everyone is impressed, it doesn't mean they'll stop putting it through its paces.

    To answer my own post.
    Spartan as it stands today is totally "net-centric" (new word?) and expects to display content by using an ip address and dns to locate that content. A local htm file does not have such attributes.!
    partial Work around.
    Put site/folders/files in a shared folder say mywebsites
    navigate:- open network - open MyLocalPCname (Whatever)
    open mywebsites navigate to htm/ html file right click open with project spartan

    content is displayed.
    Spartan has no file association with asp ,aspx, shtml as yet
