I wanted to add a little to William's reply. Are you building an intranet or a public web site?

Here's a couple of thoughts to consider:

1. Keep in mind that browser stuff is supposed to be platform independent so from a practical point of view, you would NEVER want to call a platform specific thing from a broswer. (This is why I hate ActiveX controls being requied on a public web site...blah...very disgusting.)

2. If you're building an intranet and you're going to require users to use Windows then platform specific solutions are okay but not the best practice solution. The best practice solution in that case is to write a Windows application. That would make more sense to me.

3. There are times that you want to make use of some resources on the server. In that case, calling Windows API calls or whatever is perfectly okay. However, the server would do the processing (not the browser nor the system the browser is running on). The browser would just "request" something and the server would run whatever it needs and return standard "browser" code.

4. If you're running server side ASP, then you can make API calls. If that's the case, let us know and one of us will post a tip or two.

No, you cannot. HTML and DHTML are only markup languages which define the appearance and layout of a document on the web.

You could call Windows API on the web server with ASP, CGI scripts, ISAPI scripts, PERL script, PHP, etc. and on the client with an ActiveX control or Netscape plugin.

Ya, I am building an Ineranet based app. Let me explain you what I really want to do.

I have got an HTML Page in which the IDs of Employees and Companies are there. I also has got one VB generated app. on all the client machine. Now I want that when I click on any of the IDs, it should start the app. and get the information about the clicked ID in the form. Now I was searching for a way to pass a parameter with the file, but I failed to do it from HTML page. I do not want to include any server in this process. I want to find out a way to write this ID into a file in the client machine and the execute the appl. and then read that file in my appl. to get the ID and then delete that file from appl. Can you please suggest a way for this. Or can you please suggest any other way to keep that ID somewhere in the client and use it in the appl.

Note: I donot want to include any server in this process. I want something for client-side only.....
