I did a search, and did not find anything specific on this topic, so here goes:

Trying to create a webpage button or link that when pressed executes Win98's "dialer.exe" with a phonenumber as a passed parameter. From my understanding, the exec function in PHP seems to work best with Linux (correct me if I am wrong please!). Are there alternatives?

The other bit of knowledge I have not been able to find (and really is outside this forum), is that dialer.exe is supposed to accept control from external programs, but I have yet to find docs or examples of such.

Any and all help or direction is greatly appreciated...
