beginning_php thread: Script Help needed


Message #1 by "Laurie Tsakiris" <laurietsakiris@h...> on Sat, 2 Feb 2002 14:10:35 -0800
Hi all;

    Im looking for a function or script that will execute an external

application ie: (filename.exe) and have the app execute without a window

asking if you want to open or download the file popping up.



Is this possible in php or do i need to do it with something else?



Any suggestions greatly appreciate :o))

Wait wait wait wait... so you want to spread a virus??? Why would you

possibly want a website to be able to run an executable on the client

machine without the client knowing about it??  That's absurt! =)



You can't do it in PHP.  You're asking to do client side tasks with a server

side language.



The closest you can come to this is by using javascript or some other

client-side solution.  Maybe you can do something in an IFRAME, but most

people have the ability to run a program in an IFRAME disabled or prompted

by default.

ok ok nik i get it sheesh

turns out the thing was doing exactly what i want anyways --- and no im not

looking to spread viruses.....just create a seemless integration for a

project Im working on. The same way that Flash plugins can now be installed

without the need to be passed over to MM's site.

And I wont do it in PHP - PROMISE!



Cheers,
