First off you'd have to give the ASPNET user execute priviledges on the server which I don't think that you want to do.

If the windows Program is of exe format then try with the following code

Try to include the exe in to your web folder or the ASP.NET process needs to have permissions to access the external application

string filePath = Server.MapPath(@"ApplicationName.exe"); System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo info = new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo(filePath , "Arguments of that Process"); System.Diagnostics.Process p = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(info); p.Start(); Hope this will help you,

In addition to execute rights, the user that your ASP.net app is running under must be the interactive user so that they can write to the desktop.

running windows apps in web apps
Hi all, just to check it out if there is a way to run a windows app when a button in a web app is clicked.? Hi, you're referring to what's known as smart clients. You can place a windows forms executable in the virtual folder of your webserver (IIS of course ), then create a hyperlink in your webform to the executable. If the enduser has the correct .NET framerwok installed he/she can execute the application on his/her pc. Another trick, one I recently used BTW, is to embed a winforms user control, build as .dll file, in a webform. An example can be found here: Hosting a Windows Contr...
