Launching Google Earth

  • Possibly this is off-topic, but anyway here goes.

    I am trying to launch Google Earth from my application with a KMZ
    file using NSWorkspace.
    Google Earth does get launched, but it doesn't zoom into the location
    in the KMZ file. Has anyone done this successfully?

    Thanks,
    Jim Merkel

      Have you tested it by simply opening the KMZ file from the Finder?
    If it doesn't zoom in automatically when opening from the Finder,
    this is a matter for Google Earth's technical support. If it *does*
    zoom in when launching from the Finder, it's *possible* something's
    not right with your NSWorkspace code and you should post it here for
    advice.

    It's working fine as far as I know.

    I've just checked on the product where I use it.

    Could it be that your KMZ file is not complete? For instance do you
    have a <LookAt> section?

    I read someone recommended to contact Google Earth tech support. I
    wouldn't be a lot on this path as it's probably just available when
    you are a paying Google Earth customer...
