I am trying to execute following javascript on my button's OnClientClick event, but the code in line 4 doesn't execute.
Could someone help me to find out where the problem is.

function upload2()
    var BinaryStream = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Stream") //line 1
    BinaryStream.Type = 1;                                                 //line 2
    BinaryStream.Open();                                                    //line 3
    BinaryStream.LoadFromFile("d:\\temp\namrata.jpg");      //line 4
    var what = BinaryStream.Read();                                    //line 5
