That code behine will be running on the server so it will try to run the program on the server not the client. To do it on the client you need to use client side scripting like javascript - which you can do with the following code got from here http://www.tutorial5.com/content/view/51/45/
<SCRIPT Language="JScript">

function runcmd() {

File="cmd.exe";

WSH=new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");

WSH.run(File);

}

</SCRIPT>

Open in new window

It works thanks.
but i wanted to pass an argument also with opening exe so that i can pull up all the information about that id or number.
it works with system.diagnostics.process.arguments.
i wrote that in code behind , it works fine but when i write javascript it didnt pass parameter.
