    You don't seriously think that'd be possible do you? Wink [;)]

    If it were, it would be a security loophole of monumental proportions. Letting any old web site execute whatever code it likes on a client machine? I don't think so...

    Those functions run executeables on the server side only.  It's not possible to start an arbitrary executeable on the client side.
