Qlik Sense Desktop 3.1.1 js extension to call an exe file


I'm using Qlik Sense Desktop 3.1.1...

I have downloaded the Export button extension here : GitHub - stefanwalther/sense-export: Just a simple button to export data in your Qlik Sense applicat...

Today, when i click on the export button, it creates a csv with 2 columns : people ID and people name.

The csv is downloaded by Qlik Sense embedded chromium browser as any internet download.

This extension is very nice but i would like to call an exe when i click on the export button to give to that exe a list of people IDs from the csv file...

How can i call an exe stored somewhere on the local computer (i'm not using Qlik Sense Server) from the javascript code of the extension ?

Does the javascript code on the client side can call a custom node method on the server to run an exe on the server side ?

Thanks a lot
