How run Winform application from intranet web site application?

I have written several Winform (VB.net on W/XP) applications here at the company I work for.  Now I am developing a new company intranet using vb.net asp 4.0.

One of the features I would like to offer from an intranet menu is the ability to start a Winform application.  I am not talking about running it on the intranet, just maybe transferring control to the Winform app then when the app is done, returning control to the intranet.  Something like that?

Is that possible?

Thanks

Do I need to do that on each user's computer that accesses the company's intranet?

Yes, the pluggable protocol solution requires that the protocol is installed on all machines.  You could use ClickOnce to accomplish that.

I really don't want to have to install the solution on each of the company's computers.  Isn't there a way to start Win Applications from an intranet?

I think the alternative is to create an ActiveX Control, Plug-in, or Add-on.

Whatever the best option, I would like to find a way to run the Winform from our Intranet.
