    Question HTML Coding Question

    Does anyone here know how to write an .exe that will launch in HTML. The coding would need to be able to work in multiple browsers.

    Thanks for any help.

    Does it have to be an .exe?
    Are you trying to execute a program on your server or the host computer?

    Or can you make it a javascript or vbscript? That is usually compatable with most browsers.

    Does he want the .exe to run from his server or download the .exe to the other computer and run it from there?

    You can do it using Perl or cgi but i'd have to look it up and know how and where from youwant it to run.

    my understanding is he is creating a project and burning it onto a CD, and he wants to write code that will allow for that CD to start up when the CD is put into the drive.

    This might be what you need
    autorun

    This should allow a Program to Run on insertion of a cd

    if the link dose not work search for Autorun in the Microsoft search site http://support.microsoft.com/
