 Hello,
  As far as I know, the answer is you can't. You can open a Web Form in a browser, but not a Win Form. You may try Java Applet if you want your program can run in a browser with rich feature.

You can use a browser to start an Windows application (this is a known as the No-Touch Deployment) but the application will not run in the browser and won't get the same functionnality of a web application. It is only a way to distibute application and updates.

  This is because in Windows, a browser is actually a shell.
