This simply *can't* be done client-side, sorry.
Perhaps if you explain more clearly what you are trying to do (and why) I can think of an alternative approach.
For example, if it's to install something, then why not use a real installer instead of a web page? There are plenty of free installation systems, and WinRAR can generate pretty sophisticated self-extracting/installing packages...MarcusJT
