shellexecute in ASP?

Is it possible to call shellexecute in ASP? If yes, how? Normally i would do the following for VB:

myResult = ShellExecute(Me.hwnd, "print", filename, vbNullString, "", SW_HIDE)

babypris,

I don't know what you want to accomplish but the code [hansamryan] gave you will execute on server and not client side.

If you want your code to execute ( SHELL for example ) client side you must use active X controls.
