When you say "in a webpage", do you mean you actually want to open a desktop app in the browser? If so, then I don't know of any way to do that short of opening some sort of RDS connection to a desktop, and launching the application in that RDS session. You could "embed" that session in a browser window (sort of like JoinMe and others do), but that's about as close as you could get.

Perhaps someone else has a way ...

This can be done with Windows Remote Desktop Services. You will need RDS cals however as it is not part of the standard Windows License.
