    Run local exe from url link

    From a menu link on an Intranet page I want users to be able to run Lessonm.exe on the local machine.

    Any ideas on how I do this?

    Trusted domains list I can do. No idea where to start with the java thing though.

    I wasn't sure if javascript would be able to do it, but apparently it can so i'd reccy using that instead as its easier to embed into html

    Here is a very good simple walkthrough

    Also be aware IE7 disables the Intranet security zone.

    Re: Run local exe from url link

    This might be of some use...

    LaunchinIE

    http://www.whirlywiryweb.com/q/%2Flaunchinie.asp

    its a free DLL, but requires some setup on clients (registry entries etc)

    Another (but non-free) way of doing it is:

    IntraLaunch
    http://www.particlesoftware.com/en/index.html

    Both seem to work fine, I am experimenting with both for incorporating an application launcher into intranet.
