launching .exe program from html page on cd
astounded

I have a web site on a CD. I've built it so that when the user puts the CD in the computer, an html page automatically comes up on the screen.

I also have a thumbnail program (thumbnail.exe) on the CD. On the CD, is there any way that I can have a link from the .html page to thumbnail.exe - that way the user can just click on a link and start the thumbnail program?

Of course, just link to the thumbnail program as you might on a web page.
<a href="thumbnail.exe">Thumbnail viewer</a> Depending on how the user's browser is configured, a window will probably open offering the user an option to save (download) or execute the program.
