in your .aspx code?

ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "CloseScript", "self.close();", true);

The last argument makes sure that this script code gets surrounded with script tags, so it depend where you put this line in your code...

Looks good, but the IE window is awaiting a response from the client to close the window.  The problem is that this needs to be unattended.  

All of my code is located in my c# file.  There’s nothing in the .aspx file.  The only reason I run it as an .aspx page is because that’s all I’ve ever done.  Is there a quick way to attach my code to an .exe that will run & close?

Well, you cannot attach your 'server-side' code to a 'client-side' executable and run something.
Thank god for that !!

It's default behavior of IE. You can not change that.

What is it doing?
If it is not supposed to communicate with the server, but just run something, then offcourse you can wrap it as an exe, but then, how will it get to the client machine?
You need to be specific
