web app - printing to file, running BAT file or other program

Posted on 2004-12-01

     So far it seems impossible to print a barcode from a web app to the client's secondary printer.  So I'm looking at alternatives, as my bosses will not accept this not working in our program.  What I'd like to know is, is there a way I could client-side print the barcode number (* + stock number + *) to a file, and then run a BAT file or another program?  This program would be a windows application that does nothing but open that written file and print that barcode number to the correct printer.  How can I do this?  

1) Client's machine writes lblBarCode.text to a file
2) Client's machine runs PrBarcode.exe or PB.BAT which runs PrBarCode.exe
