Looking for some javascript and/or solution to load a remote update (exe) once the html is loaded?

Looking to have my client's employees login to the Intranet and have the home page load an exe from a remote server with NO user interaction.

this is not a JS problem. it is a server side problem. however, you can make an AJAX request to server to do this with the onload event of the body tag.

run program from server by javascript? It may too dangerous. If it is a must, I suggestion run the program by server scripting languages.
If indeed, please provide what is your server OS (should be windows) and web server and server programming language (asp/jsp/php.......)?

If web server language is asp, try
Dim oShell
Dim lRet
Set oShell = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
lRet = oShell.Run("notepad.exe", 1, True)
You could do this with an invisible applet, but it would need to be signed

Best solution for the following system:

Server: CentOS
Workstations: Windows SP2/SP3 IE7/IE6

Any sample cope for invisible applet, AJAX methods?  How can sign the application if isnt already?

Thank you.
