Does any one know of or have an activex control or some other code that would allow deleting of files of off client PC.  With appropiate permissions of course.  This is for an internal company web app.

    You can use the plain VBScript.  Is an ActiveX requirement?

    No ActiveX is not a requirment.  I was unaware that you could use client-side vbscript to access the file system.  I will look into this and respond back.

    Finally got to this.  Used VB script at first, but then because this app interfaced with a Palm PC i set it up to let the synchronization do the deleting.
