WebRunPro popular applications

For Web development

How many times a client asked you if it's possible to launch his/her favorite word processor by clicking a link inside an .html page?

  • Now it's possible to launch any program with WebRunPro!

For Intranet - corporate applications

WebRunPro is great for intranet applications. Create webrun links that point to your company's applications inside your intranet portal. Your users can now launch the applications by visiting the intranet portal page. Whitelist feature ensures that only certain commands are allowed to be run.

  • No more icons on your users desktop!
  • No need to update multiple icons on users desktop when you need to make a change to an application path!


How to use

  • The first thing you need to do is download and install WebRunPro. If you have WebRun installed you must uninstall it first. Note that, webrun links will not work if WebRunPro is not installed.
  • Then go to your html page and add a webrun link pointing to the executable, file or command you want to launch.
    A webrun link starts with "webrun:" inside the href attribute, followed by the executable, file or command you want to call.
  • If your command includes double quotes you must replace each double quote with double exclamation mark - !!
    This is only a feature of WebRunPro
  • That's it! You may now click your webrun link to launch your application. If the application is not found, WebRunPro will just return a popup error.

    Important notes:

      1.To ensure cross-browser compatibility, use only ANSI characters in filepaths and WebRunPro links, UTF-8 filepaths do not work consistently across browsers.

      2.The first time you click on a webrun link, your browser will ask you if you want to associate WebRunPro.exe with this type of links. If you click "remember", you will not be prompted again.

Added security with the confirmation feature (enabled by default)

WebRunPro prompts you to confirm every action by default.

When you click on a webrun link, a popup confirmation box appears which indicates the exact command about to run.

If you don't want to launch that particular command, just click the "No" button. This way you have absolute knowledge of commands lauched with WebRunPro.

Added security with the whitelist feature

Block unauthorized command execution by utilizing the whitelist feature.

Here is how it works:

  • Create a whitelist.txt file (ANSI format only - UTF-8 is not supported) inside any accessible folder, on your PC or your network
  • Put, every command you want to allow to be run, on a new line inside whitelist.txt
  • Upon installation WebRunPro will a ask you for the whitelist folder location
  • Only commands inside whitelist.txt will be executed by WebRunPro, any other command will be blocked.

Commands inside whitelist.txt can be explicitly set e.g: C:\Windows\notepad.exe
or not explicitly set e.g: notepad.exe

Note: Non explicit commands override explicit ones e.g: notepad.exe overrides C:\Windows\notepad.exe

Example content of whitelist.txt:

cmd /k cd\&dir
"%25ProgramFiles%25\FileZilla FTP Client\filezilla.exe"


Configure WebRunPro

Both security features of WebRunPro are configurable. Set your desired whitelist path and enable or disable the confirmation dialog feature.
You can find WebRunPro Configuration on your installation folder (by default: C:\Program Files (x86)\WebRunPro\). Right click "WebRunPro Configuration.exe" and run it as administrator. WebRunPro Configuration screenshot
