    I want to run an executable on my website. When I load it onto the website and I go to 'http://www.BLAH.com/NAME.exe' my computer thinks I am trying to download the file, as opposed to running it on the site. I know that you can run a .swf on the site, but I don't have the funds to buy Flash, and if I did, I wouldn't know how to use it. I know if you go to 'http://www.BLAH.com/video.mpeg' it will load a web page that has nothing on it except the movie. That is also the case with pictures and downloads. I would like to know how to do that with a .exe. Is there some type of converter that will change my .exe's into java files or something? I don't care what it takes; I want to have the file playing on the site. Please help.

    You kind of answer your own question.

    Depending on your programs goals, you may be able to develop it using Java.
    Then, you can have the applet running on your page, much like a swf or mpeg.

    However if it is an exe file, the user will be prompted to save or open the file.

    You can buy an inexpensive flash player that you can embed into
    your site: http://www.wimpyplayer.com/purchase/index.html

    For your existing Flash Videos .... the "Wimpy WASP"

    Only $30.00 ... and it works really nice.

    I use the wimpy MP3 embedded player ... they have very nice products.
