    How to execute windows program in ASP!


    Hi, Scott:

    I have a problem with the ASP! I need to triger a windows application
    in ASP. Since the application will take long time to finish the task, I want
    to finish the ASP process, so the user don't need to wait so long! And I
    want to leave the application running on the server till it finish the task!
    Is there any way that ASP can do that, such as the "shell" function in VB?
    Cause the application is a normal ".exe" program not an ActiveX kind of program!
    I know it will increase the security issue, but we have to do that, so is
    there any way we can do this? I will really appreciate your greate help!

    Thanks

    Eric

    Hello Eric. In Designing Active Server Pages I discuss using the ASPExec
    component from ServerObjects (http://www.serverobjects.com/products.htm#free)
    to execute a Windows or DOS application on the Web server via an ASP page.

    Happy Programming!
