.exe files in HTML docs

How can I put a link to an .exe file on my web page, so when somebody clicks on it, it runs the program, instead of downloading the file?

where do you want to run the program on server or on client.

if it is on client then FRehman's answer will work.

I think you'll find that the browser will ask the user whether thay want to "open the file from it's current location" or "save the file".

As far as I know (for obvious security reasons) there is no way around this.

Coopa is right. No matter the type of executable, in HTML, you cant do it. It is going to depend on the users browser, and browser configuration. Just put a nate next to the link like this maybe:
<a href="OpenMe.exe">Click Here</a> <font size="-1">(Select open file, if your browser asks)</font>
