starting a windows app from CF - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

Does anyone know if there is a way to start a windows application locally on the visitors PC from CF? If that is possible, will it accept arguments such as an XML doc as input?...

    Definitely not--that would be a huge gaping security hole!

    They wouldn't want to set that up as it would be instantly used by hackers to
    whatever they wanted (viruses, pwd crackers, etc) on others PC's. They could
    even install something like VNC and then VNC into the machine and take it over
    completely.
