Launch notepad from browser

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>

If u want to load ur text file in the clients machine,just hv a link to ur text file and browser will load and launch notepad automatically.If u want just to load notepad,then hv a dummy(empty)txt file and hv the link.It will load notepad.Hope this will serve ur requirements.

i have successfully launch the notepad from browser by creating active x object.

however, the line
new ActivexObject("Wscript.Shell")
wont be run successfully, if the user has disable downloading activex control in their browser security setting.
