Security restriction mean this isn't the best thing to be doing. however, try getting the windows scripting host docs from http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/ , and try it out through a browser (may well not work)<BR><BR>if the exe is ActiveX compatible, you can run it from CreateObject in VBScript<BR><BR>I don't think you can do this in other platforms than windows<BR><BR>note : this is very dodgy - imagine getting sent a virus, and then the scripting engine in Outlook automatically runs it?<BR><BR>j
<BR>Thanx for ur interest Atrax.<BR><BR>I under stand this is not the best thing running the .exe of the client, but suppose i want to run it.<BR>I tried using the scripting environment. I made a .asp file which when called from the browser of the client opens a new session of IE. <BR>Now, Instead of opening IE on the clients m/c it opened it on the server. How can i solve this problem.? I want to open it in the Clients machine.<BR>Cud u help please?<BR><BR>
Short answer: It is not possible!<BR><BR>Only solution: The client has to manually download the .exe and run it himself.<BR><BR>Imagine, would you like to automatically download and run my new, cute little program called format_the_c_drive.exe?
