It is NOT recommended to run executables from a web page due to the potential security risk.

However, there are several ways you could do this. Here are a couple:

1. Create and ISAPI script or CGI script which executes a program given parameters passed.

2. Create a COM object which executes an program and use it in an ASP page.
