Call a VB Exe from a web page
Posted on 2004-08-11
I have created a VB exe that I would be storing in the server where I have hosted my site. Through a link from a asp page, I want the user to open that exe and pass some values to it. The exe will then perform some actions based upon those values and return the result to the user. Is this possible?
I forsee the following problems:
1. being an exe the IIS settings may not allow it to run on the server.
2. How can the user interact with the exe through a browser. possibly the browser will ask the user to download the exe at his/her machine.
