    launch program from website

    Is there a possible way to launch a .exe program from a website through some sort of hyperlink instead of it being downloaded when the link is clicked on?

    unfortunately nog, due to basic security. The reason is this tactic would be immediatly employed by script kiddies and hackers worldwide and would seriously reduce security.

    there is an option to run from current location but you have to get your visitors to 100% trust your source.

    as alreday mentioned i think java is the key here
    (and it kills me to say that!)

    if you want to open the website from you floppy - why dont you just use a link. Create a new shortcut - its easier.
