Hello all! Is there a possibility to launch EXE-file from JSX script? I want to receive some properties from timeline's clip, send them to external tool, then get result from external tool and apply it in timeline. I believe that the 'Plural Eyes' works in a similar way. So, is there a way 'JSX -> external EXE -> JSX'? Thanks.

Not directly from ExtendScript, but yes, a CEP panel could do that. Your panel's ExtendScript could get whatever info it wanted from the timeline. Your panel's JavaScript could then use a command line to invoke the external tool, and get results, which could then be passed to other ExtendScript code within your panel. See CEP HTML Test Panel (in the CEP repository) for an example of invoking command lines from panels.
