iPad does not support ActiveX
Ryan ChongBusiness Systems Analyst , ex-Senior Application EngineerCommented:
probably can't directly access to server's local resource (like a local executable) from web due to security constraints.

what you may consider is to build a Web Service/ API so that let it to handle the communication with local resource, will your web request can communicate with that Web Service / API.

hope this make sense.
