No, you can't make a desktop application run on the Web. A desktop application only works on the operating system it was designed for. Of course, you have the opportunity to re-create the desktop app as a web service through Visual Studio, but that requires extensive knowledge and skills. Take the example of Dropbox: there is a desktop application with its known functionality and the web service which acts like the desktop application only which is accessible from any location of the world.
