    well . . . are you renting the server or do you have shared hosting on a server?

    Rackley the best person to ask that question would be your host. I don't host on windows servers so I wouldn't be able to help you but your host should be able to tell you how to do it and if it is allowed on their servers.

    If you have rdesktop or ssh access to the server then it's just a matter of going to the directory where you uploaded the file and running it.

    There are also some .exe's designed to run as cgis called through a web browser.

    However most shared hosting providers do not allow their customers to run that kind of "permanent" processes.

    If you are trying to run a game server then you should sign up for a game server hosting instead of webhosting (by the way most game server hosts provide some webspace).
