hi all,

I was just wondering whether this is possible so it becomes easy for me to solve my problem to Open an .exe or some microsoft inbuilt tools which comes with windows from server and show on client side so they can directly edit some data on server in web app.

tried activex but no luck.

No, it is not possible.

In fact, it is one of the things that we all pay a lot of money each year for to prevent: firewalls, antivirus software...

If I understand what you are trying to do is like opening a remote terminal on client side and let him do whatever he wants.
Then a straight on answer is
1. No, you cant do this using a webtop based interface without any addon installed on client.
Workaround:- Try immitating the application interface on webapplication where clients will input data on webpage and here at server side you manipulate their events and inject it into the applications windows procedure after translation.But this is very hazy idea.infact ur server will be badly smashed if request rises(Although u can use this for a couple of clients).
2.Yes, if u are going to shift your technology from webbased interface to some cloud server and provide a client based software to accommodate the protocols and requirements.
A simple solution is to use a remote terminal or VPN but keep in mind that u r not inside a NAT based network otherwise u need a server with static ip as mediator in communication.
