I am looking for a way to integrate a web application with a client application that will sit on the users desktop. Our scenario looks like this user will click a link in the client server application that will launch an .ASPX and pass various parameters
via a querystring. User will make form inputs on ASPX page and on that input, I need to be able to execute a .EXE on the client machine that will refresh the window in the client server application.
I have looked at some tutorials for using ActiveX for this, but they all seem out of date and the ones that I have been able run prompt the user with the Activex warning dialog, which I would like to avoid. The ideal situation for us would be an ActiveX
or some other type of control that the user can download once and than run throughout our app.
I have been chasing this for 2 days and if anyone has expierance doing something like this or any ideas on how it might be accomplished that they could share, I would really appreciate it.

For me it sounds like you have a Win Forms application installed on your users desktops and you want it to communicate with an aspx page? Are you the developer off the Win Forms application? If so, you can use the embedded browser control that are part off
the toolkit for Win Forms development. Use that and open your aspx page inside your application. If this is not the case please share us more information about your problem.
