how to run an exe application from ASP

is is possible to run an exe application from IIS server.
i have developed a VB application that creates charts and
displays it in a form. is there any way i can run this
exe from my ASP page..

would really appreciate your help!!

Yes you can,
Register the exe using the following command

c:/directorywhereyouhavetheexe/filena.exe regserver

Once you do this, your exe is registered as a component and you can create referenes to it using
"Server.CreateObject" command in your asp.

hope this helps.

can you provide me an example that opens an exe file in
an ASP page..

As i told you earlier, all you have to do is register the exe on the server using the regserver command, and you can access the exe from your asp.,say for example i registered a exe called myexe. It has class like clsx and clsx has a function called add. in my asp code in order to use the exe i do something like this:

Dim myobj
Dim myresult

Set myobj = Server.CreateObject("myexe.clsx")
'reference to that class in myexe

myresult = myobj.add(1,2)


did u get the idea??
hope this helps.

You can try using the free AspExec component from ServerObjects.com if you want to run executables or coimmand-line applications remotely through ASP pages.

You may use Process.Start to start an EXE from an ASP.NET application, but the EXE will run on the Web server; the user will not see the app in his or her browser.

I don't know of any way to take an existing Windows application and automatically turn it into a Web application. In general, you must rewrite the UI code to display HTML in the user's browser; you may, however, be able to reuse the non-UI code in the Web app.
