How to execute an exe file using Node?

Spread the love

To execute an exe file using Node, we use the execfile method.

For instance, we write

const exec = require("child_process").execFile;

exec("hello.exe", (err, data) => {
  console.log(err);
  console.log(data.toString());
});

to call exec run to hello.exe.

We get the output from data and errors from err in the callback.
