It's often because the RFC for url format isn't quite clear enough for a
file url on a windows machine.  You could try the old browser style:


I've never been able to find documentation about using "|" instead of
":", and the colon is supposed to be legal, but a lot of code wants to
see it anyway.  Also, path separators are supposed to be forward slashes
(even for Windows paths) - although both IE and Netscape browsers are
very tolerant about the file:// url format.

Another thing that's supposed to work for a local file is


But what actually works with any piece of code is anyone's guess.  Just
keep trying the possibilities.

So you could try the above formats and see if they work. But it's still
not desirable for use as a namspace urn.
