Have a question.

I have a program running on my desktop that is client side of a program. Is it possible to run something like this on a Web Site??? Or at least run the program from the Web Site.

It is a C+ program that installs the client on your desktop for use.

I'm thinking not but what someone who know for sure to tell me.

Thanks for any input you my have.

To the question you asked, kinda. To the question I think you're trying to ask, no.


It is possible for a web server to run things like "programs". They run on the server itself. It is not possible for the server to cause a program to run on the client. That would be really, really bad.


There are workarounds for very specific environments, like Windows domains when people are using Internet Explorer/Edge, not to mention completely unrelated mechanisms like a network-local server remotely running commands on the client machine itself, but that's something else.
