execute .cmd from javascript?

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me how I can call a .cmd file from a javascript file.

Ive tried this but doesnt work.

Here is the js file called install.js

function install()
{
document.location.href="file:///c:/install/install/cmd";
}


here is how I am calling it from a .hta file.

<HEAD>
<script language="javascript1.2" src="./install.js"
type="text/javascript"
APPLICATION="yes">
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

...
...

<a href=""><img src="button.gif" onclick="install();"></a>

Ive based this off the windows post install wizard someone posted a few months back. I cant seem to find the post. It does everything I want except execute the install.cmd as it actually was made for unattended install.

Nevermind, I found the typo in the code.

I also have an alternative so this method I was trying had been abandoned.
