    an .exe?

    executables arent meant to be run in a browser window.

    thx Whooami. Oke, I'll be more specific. I have a program, say calculator.exe. I want my visitors to use that calculator. Not only dowload but use it on a weblog page.
    Take http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/rununiv/mcmillanrunningcalculator.htm as an example.

    well thats a bad example, since thats not an .exe.. what your example is is a perl script.

    perl scripts run in browsers, java scripts run in browsers, .exes do NOT, they run in the operating system.

    so .. are you trying to embed a perl script, or an actual windows executable?

    Because you cant do the latter like that example.

    Yes, it's a perl script indeed.
    First, check if your hosting provider support perl.
    Then, ask the site owner to share the perl file and usage instruction :)

    Or go grab one of the million or so available on free script sites....
