run: Protocol handler

The most popular download on the site. Over 5000 downloads in 2002!

This litle program allows you to launch executables from web pages (read: active desktop themes) without being bothered by a download dialog. It is used by schools, libraries, in internet café's and public kiosk computers to allow users to launch applications in a user-friendly way. The first version of this program was written in VB6, but since the last version the program was rewritten in C#. It's still very small though.
