    Think from a security standpoint, if you could call c:\anyfile.exe, what you stop you from calling something like c:\windows\fdisk.exe and wipping out an unsuspected users drive? You cannot call an exe on the client side.

    shahid, this is the security restriction that I was telling you about in your previous posts.

    If you say that you do it specifically for one client, give him the .exe file and instructions to run it on his computer.

    No way that javascript or anything else would run this file automatically.

    Why don't you just put the user-input part of it into the program too, and get them to run it?

    Re: call an exe file in client side

    Are the folder names related to the data that is being saved?

    If not, just have it as a separate program.

    If they are, then you should consider a different method of saving the data... if it is going to a database then you can use ADO (or similar) to write to the database from a VB program.

    the data save at server side...while the folder create at client side...the server is using ASP as server language...what about the client..javascript is not creating folders.

    Like I mentioned in your other thread, ActiveX, and only if the browser doesn't block it. And in FF/Opera, it won't even work.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish? What is the requirement, and why does it need to be on the user's machine? perhaps you should be making a program in VB6, not ASP.
