What you're wanting to do is to run an executable program from withing ASP code. I don't believe that is possible. It is a security feature of ASP. Otherwise, any rogue programmer could write an ASP web page that executes programs on your computer. Visual Basic and Access Basic both have the Shell command to shell out to run other programs. VbScript does not have this command. I've tried for years to figure out a way, and I've concluded it's impossible.

I hope someone can prove me wrong!
