Well then, use a rewrite rule to change your path into a valid HTTP
URL.  It's impossible to give specific instructions without knowing your
exact HTTP server configuration so the best I can do is give you some
generalizations.  Assume everything in C:/Progra~1/Micros~3 is available
as the prefix /MS.  Therefore, the path
C:/Progra~1/Micros~3/VC98/CRT/SRC/OPEN.C is available as
/MS/VC98/CRT/SRC/OPEN.C.  You can then use the following:

ReplaceRules replace "C:/Progra~1/Micros~3" "/MS"
