Hello, I've been assigned the task of creating an internal site for our office that has links to all the websites we use as well as the applications we use.

I'm very comfortable using php with mysql for handling forms and displaying database information but I'm not sure how to go about this.

So my question is, is there anyway I can use php to open an exe file?

If it is possible, I'd do a bit of reading on the following functions:
  • exec()
  • system()
I glanced over the comments in the system() manual page, and there was reference to an executable file, so it may be possible...
