if you want to remotely run a batch file you will need to use content dispostition which needs to be done with a server side language.

The only way you can do this in a non serverside language is to provide a link the bat file explaining to users they need to click it.

or use a javascript redirect to jump to the batch file.

decide how you want to do it, and ask in the relevent forum.

good luck
