Linking to ISAPI web application  - effect on SEO

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I have written an ISAPI web application (compiles to a dll file) that I want to link to from numerous places on an existing site.  Could linking (several times) to an application that cannot be 'crawled' by Google and the like reduce the pagerank or reduce SEO in any other way for the site or would the link just be ignored?  To clarify, I don't expect any SEO improvement by dong this, I just want to know if I can expect any negative effect.
