You will need another program to run generic programs.  Most of the microsoft apps will work by creating an instance of them.  Check out Activeserverpages.com for the Dl and more info.

how about a dll that just shells out to the prog you want to run? you could then create an instance of the dll, and call it's shell out method.

or an activex exe that shells out to the prog you want to run. I think you have to bugger about with the aspallowoutofprocprocess metabase to launch activex exe's on the server though. And i'm not sure if you can shell out properly from an activex exe, i've got a feeling it'll launch it as a process rather than an app.

There is a free component you can use called aspexec. Check it out at http://www.serverobjects.com/products.htm#Aspexec

Hope this helps,
