"call windows application in web", you don't. Use a scheduled task or a windows service for this.

Do you have a valid reason for not using the windows scheduler?

Is the title you've used misleading?
It sounds like the problem you want solved is how to call your application which creates a pdf file from a web page (probably a CGI script?) In which case the "scheduling" is more about checking the last time the pdf was created, and either returning the pre-created one or creating a new one if the month has changed?
So the question is actually about how to create the PDF file on request as needed?
Am I right?
Ian.

Just in case you really can't use the windows scheduler (due to the hosting environment perchance) you might like this library: Quartz.NET[^].
