Hi,

Is there a way to create a control that can verify files on a client machine and then run an executable on the client without downloading an ocx?

If not is there a way to deploy an ocx in asp.net?

You can host a Windows User control in ASP.NET web form. However, it does restrict some operations on the client side for file operations:

"and the second... the answer is: you can make ocx controls with Visual Studio not with ASP.NET"

...I was asking how to deploy in asp.net...not write it -- it is a given you must create this in visual studio.

Nauman:

Will hosting a windows user control allow me to execute programs and download programs to a client machine?

If I can't do this...can you explain how to imbed an ocx in asp.net? (my original question)

thanks....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I haven't tried manipulating the end user file system using Windows user control but I think you should give it a try. Nonetheless, you will end up learning new thing that will be beneficial in future even if you do not use it in current project :)
