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....

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 :)
