Will running Windows .exe from ASP.NET web page cause memory prob

Hello Community

IIS is how we deploy an ASP.NET web application.

The reason I ask that question is because I was told that .exe
files take up alot of memory when they run and the more times it is
called by multiple users the more memory it uses which is why
ClickOnce deployment is preferred over having users run an .exe file.

If I put the Windows application (.exe) on the web page and allow users
to access the Windows application by clicking a link on the web
page that executes a dos batch file that executes the Windows
application (.exe), if mulitple users access the Windows applicaton (.exe)
will the Windows application .exe take up alot of memory causing alot of
problems on the server that the ASP.NET it is called on is running on?

Thanks
Jeff

I never heard about that one, and I don't think that is correct in a
deployment scenario for the pros and cons with an exe application
deployment as opposed to a click once application deployment.

Yeah, that exe is going to be taking up a lot of resources that would
normally be used by Web applications on the Web server. It will also
slow the Web site down if that exe is allow to run too much.

You should consider using some kind of offline processing, directing
the requests to run the exe to another server like an application server
and using some kind of queuing mechanism to queue the requests to run
the exe on another server/machine and not burden the Web server with the
processing requests.
