    Question WebBrowser control is not displaying local HTML files

    Hi guys

    I wasted a week so far reading and trying all the solutions I can find on the net only to find that they do no work.

    I have a listbox that shows the filename of all files in a "show" folder. Clicking on a filename should display the HTML file in the webbrowser control.

    Here is the code I'm using at the moment and the actual file location is "D:\The Penfound Project\family\show\1.html"

       Private Sub ListBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ListBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
            Dim SF, URLString As String
            SF = ListBox1.SelectedItem.ToString
            SF = myPath & SF
            WebBrowser1.AllowNavigation = True
            URLString = "file:///" & SF
            URLString = URLString.Replace("\", "/") 'this does not work
            'URLString = "https://penfound.org" 'this works
        End Sub
    When I click on a filename the program locks up wit ha blank browser area.
