There's no direct way to call an executable on a user's computer and for good reason. If a site could cause a program to be executed locally, this would constitute a massibe security hole.

foxweb 1.x, winxp is my server os, vfp6.0, apache web server.
want to call a program on the clients machine from the browser (ie) and pass it a variable from the vfp database on the server. this will be a closed system with each client having the executable on their machines.
so lost i don't know if this is a simple 'well .... duh.' or is it a specific call of vbscript or something like that.
my reasearch would indicate that going with vbscript may be the most fruitfull approach.
Please Help Me Obi Wan Kanobi, your my only hope.
