This is because you have specified a url as 'c:\...' and the format of a
url is 'protocoll:', so it is interpreted a the protocoll 'c' (as the
exception says)

What you want is to say that you want to specify a file url, thus:

I'm not sure if 'file:c:/' is the actual right way, but the first variant
always works for me :)
