    Running an .exe file on IIS webserver

    Does someone how can I make an exe file run on IIS webserver ?
    I want, from my webbrower, to target (reference) a file with extension .xyz on the webserver and submit it to an exe file on the same webserver.
    After the processing is completed, I want the IIS get the output sent to the stdout and sent it back to the browswer.
    Thank You for the help.

    you could prolly pull it off using asp with a database and a vbscript.

    user opens asp page and inputs target file info
    user submits form
    asp adds file info to database

    you webserver will need to run a always-on script to notice the database change.
    When a target file is found, have the script retrieve the file info.
    The script then run the exe /w the file info.
    Have the exe update the db with the output or write the output to a file and have the script retrieve the info and update the db.

    the asp script will have to refresh to be able to retrieve the updated data.
