If you make the Executable and ActiveX EXE you can create the objects that the ActiveX EXE can create from Active Server Pages.  Then you can use the objects to do what ever it is you were planning on doing.
As far as a regular EXE goes you can put a <A> link to the EXE then instruct the people viewing the page to select open link when they click on it.  This will cause the program to be downloaded and run on the client's computer.

I sorry I missed the end of the question.  But as far as the parameters go you should be able to just put them as part of the <A> link and they should be used as the parameters.

How exactly  would one call the exe from the <a>? In my case the Script is the actual caller not an <a href , I am using navigate with the navigate location being the EXE. I can do this but cannot seem to formulate the VBscript syntax to take the parameters. Any Ideas, Examples please Thanks
