I want to play it on client side.

I was said to keep it into c drive in client pc. Actually it is a player given by client.
And it is only exe file

So when user play file, it will take a file from server and run exe from client.
It starts the process of exe but do not show GUI of player

Solution 1

You cannot do that, excepot in specific circumstances which do not exist in 99.99% of situations.
Security will not allow you to directly execute any program on the client from the server.
There are various ways to play sounds at the client, but none of them allow you to specify an executable program to run.

than what is the solution ? this player is give by client and this files not supported by media player or other players

Please give me the solution.

The only way you can run an exe on the client is if the client is running IE, AND the client has ActiveX controls enabled, AND the client accepts your ActiveX control, AND the client allows it to run, AND they have the EXE on their system.

If you can persuade all of these conditions to be true, then start reading up on how to write an ActiveX control. Otherwise, forget it, and look for a better solution to your problem.
