Default Trying to execute an c executable from an asp

Hi folks,

I am actually trying to use a C executable in asp.
So if you have any more info in that area, please let me konw.
Also, I'm not too familiar with the WScript and how to go about to create one.Also i am confused whether should by using exec fuction when we want to run the executable file and writing its contents into an file.Then i need to print the executable content in an notepad file.
for exampls in he Dos prompt if we run the exe file

C:/test.exe > sample.txt then content of exe will be written to the sample.txt which wll be created as a reult.
I want to do the same but through asp page.I should call an asp page and should write the content in to sample notepad file.

It'd be great if u can provide some sample code or detailed description.

Thanks Again

Looks like you have posted twice the same thing. Is'nt it?

And coming to your problem, what error you are encoutnering in doing that?

Also, why do you want to invoke a EXE on the server from a webrequest. You need to exercise more caution to safeguard the server then, particularly when the number of invocations of EXEs increase (though you may check for single instance etc) with increasing number of HttpRequests to the particular web resource.
