The usual way of using VB as the back-end for a web page is to use ASP. You can use VB to create a COM dll, which you can then access using Server.CreateObject(). To pass information from one to the other, simply add a function or property to your COM class, and call it from ASP

Problem with command line is that I have N number of "HTML pages" ( cant be ASP) and from these N number of pages there will be some links on some pages. On click on these links, same VB exe will be called but with a different parameter attached. this attached parameter will be used in the VB application for some calculations ......

Looking for some solution.....

Can you explain why it can't be ASP? Are you using a web server that doesn't support it? What technologies do you have available for running server side code? It's quite likely there's a way to wire up some plumbing to get to COM.

I am not using any server, thats why ASP cant be used... its something like a stand alone application on a single system..... in which few simple HTML pages might be there which may have links to a VB application with different parameters from each link. These parameters can be used somewhere in the VB exe.....

Solution without using command line arguments is required......

In which case, you can use client side scripting techniques. The script is embedded in <script> tags in your HTML page, and from there, you can access ActiveX objects (i.e. COM components). There are some security implications - for example nowadays your browser is probably configured not to allow ActiveX objects even if they are marked as safe for scripting. (Marking a script as safe for scripting involves adding a registry key that lets your browser know that it's OK to run the object - this is necessary, because your browser will also download activex objects from the Internet.)

A good starting point for reading up on client side scripting would be the Internet Explorer developer centre at:

For the security implications, try this one:
