web server push a device driver to a client

Hi All,

I need my web server (apache on linux) to install a device driver on the client machine (IE & windows)if the client does not have it installed.

Any clue, starting point?

you could use a signed applet to handle the install.
what needs to be run to install the driver?

all it would need to do is use Runtime.exec() to run the executable.

Why don't you just provide a link to this .exe file on your web server and then users can download and install it without the need of applet. Only drawnback I can think of is that it will have to be reinstalled even if it is already installed.
