Hi Renushree,

Yes,Its Possible to integrate .exe files. You can store it in KM.

And assign them into a Page by creating Url Iviews for the exe file Path in KM.

Hi Renushree

why do you want to store .exe files in the portal. Be aware there might be users with different OS which do not support .exe files.

As Michael suggested you can upload the .exe files (like any other file) in a KM repository and make them available through an ordinary KMNavigation iView.

Maybe you could explain why you want to "integrate" the files into SAP NetWeaver Portal.

Best regards,

Sometimes people ask about starting programs from the portal. Yes, it can be done, but generally you need to make a file association to start that particular application and then launch a page with that extension...

As Martin points out, the problem is that you can't be sure the user's desktop has:

a) that file association or

b) that application

There are also all sorts of security risks involved.
