Sharepoint 2013 - Run a batch file or VBS file
Posted on 2014-08-13
We have an internal Intranet site. We have lots of batch files for end users to remove icons, add icons, install acrobat, etc.
We are in the process of setting up a Sharepoint 2013 intranet site and would like to be able to put these batch files in Sharepoint.. I changed the allow extensions to accept .bat and .cmd, I uploaded a simple batch file. When I click on it instead of asking me to run is only allows me to save.
On our current intranet site we use .cmd to launch Crystal Reports in a viewer, when you click on it you can select Run.
I have tried adding .bat mime type to the Shaepoint IIS site and set security in IE to Intranet but I still get the save only dialog box.
Any way to change it or make it simpler? I dont want users downloading batch files then having to run them.
