Help - Can a DOS batch file be executed from HTML?

    I read that a .exe file can't. So I am curious.

    Thank you

    From HTML, neither. From a web page, you can easily launch exe's, dll's
    and batch files.

    *Where* do you want the DOS batch file to run? On the client, or on the
    server?

    Server - yes, but it depends on:

    1. Does the server run DOS/Windows?
    2. Server settings.

    Client - yes, but it depends on:

    1. Does the client run DOS/Windows?
    2. Browser settings.
