Hi

I have a web application from a vendor with .exe as an extension. The initial plan was to install that application on Azure Virtual machine.

Now checking, can this application be installed on Azure App Service?? if so, how .exe file can be installed on App Service?

    @Khan, Javeed For PaaS solution, theoretically, you should be able to the upload the exe file to a Windows App Service. The exe file can be executed in WebJob or triggered by a Function App. For more information, you can refer to below document.

    For communicating with WebJob, it is recommended to use Queue messages. You can refer to below posts for more information and sample.
