Running Executables from IIS 6.0

Good Day!
How do I configure IIS 6.0 so I can run .exe's from a URL? Here's what I'm trying to do:
1. User has URL -->
2. URL is clicked, the application is downloaded to the client PC, and executed.
3. When user is done with application, it is closed then removed from the client PC.

When we were running IIS 5.0, it was fairly easy, edit the security.config file(once), create a virtual directory for the .exe, supply the URL to the client and "POOF!" everything worked.
Now with IIS 6.0, nothing works! By the way, all this is done on an internal network with no outside connection and the VB.Net apps are created in house.

If anyone could possibly help, it would be greatly appreciated!
