Hi,

Does anyone know how to launch notepad from browser, without prompting you to save or run the exe file ??

Launching the notepad from client side, and not from the web server.

thanks...

Yes you can do it using wscript activex object.

(eg)

<Script>
var ws=new ActivexObject("Wscript.Shell")
ws.Run("notepad")
</script>
