HOWTO Make a UserControl deploy an embedded resource.

Please help,

I need to embed an EXE into a C# UserControl that is run from script in an
HTML web page as such:

<html>
<object
id=objTest
classid="http://MyTrustedWebSite/MyAssembly.dll#MyNameSpace.MyControl"
style="display: inline;"
VIEWASTEXT

</object>
<br>
OptiWebDeployer Test...
</body>
<script language=jscript>
var objTest;
objTest.Deploy();
</script>
</html>

So far, I've embedded the EXE I need to run as an embedded resource, and can
see from the size of my UserControl that it is getting embedded. But I'm not
sure on how to make the C# code extract it, write it to file, and then
execute the EXE. My Attempt on the Deploy method so far is as such:

public string Deploy()
{
System.Reflection.Assembly Assembly_This;
Assembly_This = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
System.IO.Stream Stream_OptiCenter;
Stream_OptiCenter = Assembly_This.GetManifestResourceStream
(
"MyControl.MyResource.exe"
);

FileStream FileStream_OptiCenter =
File.Create("c:\\Temp\\MyResource.exe");
long lLen = Stream_OptiCenter.Length;
byte[] byteOptiCenter = new byte[lLen];
Stream_OptiCenter.Read(byteOptiCenter, 0, (int) lLen);

FileStream_OptiCenter.Write(byteOptiCenter, 0, (int) lLen);
FileStream_OptiCenter.Close();
return "EXE was successfully deployed...";
}

When I try this, I get a run time error as such:

=======================================
Error: Request for the permission of type
System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission,mscor lib, Version=1.0.5000.0,
Culture=neatral,PublicToken=b77a5c561934e089 failed.
=======================================

So I have questions.
1) Is that C# code correct to deplot the EXE from an embedded resource?
2) Why did I get that security error? I trusted the site from IE, and I
added "http://MySite/*" to the security of my .NET 1.1 config as a URL for
the entire enterprise.
3) How do we actually launch the EXE?
