How to run third party .exe ?

Hello, I want to run a third party exe in Outsystems. For instance, a user would upload a text file with parameters and inputs to outsystems app. In the backend outsystems would call the exe with the input parameters. Once the exe finish processing, it would display the result to the user. Note that the exe would take time to process. How would I go about doing this? I know most programming languages support "system("xyz.exe")" calls to run exe. Shall I use integration studio and call system calls from C# code?

Thank you.

Hi, 

Take a look at the code of Htmltopdf, from Forge. It has an extension module in C# that does exactly what you are trying to do.

Use this Forge component:

Hi Sai,

Just don't add anything as [arguments]?
