If I put in an hyperlink something like C:\Program Files\program.exe, Freemind does not make "program.exe" start normally (as if the exe was started by double-clicking on its icon), but make it start as if "program.exe" was present in the folder where Freemind is present.

Why such a weird behaviour and is there something to do to make such hyperlinks work normally?

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2007\Office12\PPTVIEW.EXE
But this does not work (the icon created automatically also changes):
