    Force Run .exe from a Intranet Page?


    We've been designing an intranet page for the students in our school and are trying to streamline the start menu. The problem is when we they click a hyperlink thats linked to a .exe file, it asks to either run or save it - We want them to run it...

    Is there anyway of forcing the .exe to run through the website code?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Haven't tried it myself as my intranet never got off the ground but this has been in my bookmarks for a while as a recommended solution -

    Whirly Wiry Web, Guide to Neat Net Code - Launch-in-IE

    Should do the job!

    <FORM NAME="Form4">
    <INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="Button4" style="width:75px"></INPUT>
    <script FOR="Button4" EVENT="onClick" LANGUAGE="VBScript" src="stafflogon.vbs"></script>
    Restore printers and drives (staff)

    then use the call to vbs to launch the exe.

    Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    objShell.Run "\\share\program.exe"
