    create Anchor tag linked with .exe?

    Hi all,
    I want to link an .exe file as a anchor tag in an html page.
    EX:
    <a href="path to that .exe file">message</a>

    If i click that link in the web browser at the time of running the html page in the browser, it will be displayed that .exe file execution result on the browser.

    Please provide the solution to solve this problem.

    Thanking you.

    Do you want people to download the file? If so, zip it first.

    not like that.
    Actually it is for my local system, not for website.

    i want to execute in the local system by clicking on the link.

    i want to make two links in one anchor tag, If possible.
    1. for opening the specific page based on the url and automatically
    2. execute the .exe

    You cannot automatically execute *.exe files directly via a browser by clicking a link because it would be a severe security risk.
