    Default Execute EXE files thru ASP.

    I have 2 questions regarding executing exe files thru ASP. <BR>1. I would like to execute the exe file on the server itself via an ASP form. How do I do it? I would like to use this for uploading excel data into a database. If I do this through ASP directly the IIS gives a time out and it is very slow...whereas a small VB program can import data into the database real fast...<BR>2. In the second case the exe is residing on the server but I want the exe to be executed on the client machine and information collected by this exe to be written on a file on the server. <BR>eg. I have a C program which gets hardware information about the machine. I would like this C program to reside on the server and the user shall execute this on the Client machine and all the information shall be passed back to the server.<BR><BR>All suggestions are welcome. <BR><BR>Thanks in advance.

    1. http://rtfm.atrax.co.uk/infinitemonkeys/articles/asp/950h.asp though you&#039;d probably find VB COM a better option than flapping about in WSH land, or if it&#039;s performance you&#039;re after, C++ COM would blow the shorts off pretty much anything else.<BR><BR>2. you want to force and exe to run on the client? forget it. without the user downloading it and running it you have no hope. think about the security implications!<BR><BR><BR>j<BR>http://rtfm.atrax.co.uk/<BR><BR>
