Having a Button Run an EXE?

As it stands with my website I have a Scheduled Task running in the background that is checking for various changes to my DataBase, WebSite and other XML files.

I was wondering is there a safe way to provide the facility on my site when the user clicks a button, it would force the scheduled Task to re-run?

So effectively I would be looking for the OnClick event of a button to run an EXE, located on the same server as the site?

Just set the value of RemotePC to "localhost" since you want to execute this command locally.
