Default Execute VBS files via ASP.NET (VB.NET)

Hi all,

I've a serious problem:
I want to run a VBS-file at the server, called by an ASP.NET file (coded in VB.NET).

(Reason: The VBS-file converts every uploaded .DOC file to .PDF automatically - this works when i open it manually)

I've tryed Shell-Functions and some other Framework functions/methods, but it did not work. When i tried to open i.E. calc.exe, i see it in the task-manager (means: it is executed). When i open a .bat file, i also see cmd.exe in the task-manager, but the bat does not do what i want (echo hello>test.txt).

The IIS and ASP.NET user are setted to Administratos and have full rights to everything.

(I know that ASP.NET does not show a window when a file is executed, that does not matter - but it does matter when it does not do anything ;) )

Does anybody of you have a solution???

thanks for reading/answering,


BTW: I can not convert the VBS into my VB.NET because it's forbidden to open Office-Applications with framework functions (MS' protection).
