the error msg
"file:///G:/…"is not an absolute uRL that can be passed…
is misleading. It happens simply when the path does not exist, eg, because the file has been renamed.
If the file is missing, just say 'path does not exist' instead of this complicated and abstruse message about some absolute URL…
We have bug 125607. And message is not wrong like you say here.
Please give exact situation and attach example files.

Maybe I forgot to make this comment —sorry:
Open URL.odt. Format>Frame&Object>Properties, tab Hyperlink, Browse; choose any file in your computer —eg, a .txt file; hit OK. ^click the frame: the text file opens (eg, via Notepad), which (presumably) implies that the URL is 'absolute' and 'can be passed…'.
Reopen the hyperlink property, change the filename to a non-existent one —eg, alter one character; hit OK. ^click the frame: The error msg pops. Yet, the problem has nothing to do with the URL not being 'absolute'; it is just that the file does not exist.
For missing .ODT, .ODP.. hyperlink message is correct: file does not exist.
It's just for missing .TXT (I can't say for what else) that I get wrong error as reported.
