Hyperlink to launch client's local executable program with parameters

Last Modified: 2011-08-18
Hi all experts,

I'd like to know how to create a hyperlink (javascript or other techniques are also welcome) so that when client clicks on the link, web browser (only IE is fine, but working for all browsers is excellent) will luanch a local executable program located in the client machine with parameters. No executable files are in the server. All executable files are in the client machines.

For example:
C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyApp.EXE -Param1 15 -Param2 20
