Invoking Win32 API functions on client from web page
We have the following:
An ActiveX exe on client machines using Win32 API functions to access local
O/S data. We successfully are able to invoke the ActiveX component within
a HTML page on the client side when using the IE 4.0 browser or above. The
Unfortunately, this does not work when using Netscape 4.51. Java fails on
the statement that attempts to create the object.
Is there a compatable, between IE and Netscape, method that can be used to
invoke the ActiveX component on the client machine? If not, how would this
type of functionallity be implemented in a Netscape environment? It is not
a requirement to use the existing ActiveX component if the functionallity
can be provided some other way.
Thanks in advance for any help offered.
