Default #exec server directive

i have win2k and IIS 5 and i want to run an administrative script from an asp page. so in the beginning asp 3 book, it says i can use the #exec server directive.

i would type something like this on the command line:
cscript c:\scripts\dosomething.vbs

so would i do this in an asp page?

also, the book says i have to add a registry value called SSIEnableCmdDirective to use the cmd directive. would this be a key under the folder ..../Parameters or a REG_SZ in the folder ..../Parameters?

thanks in advance

Your almost there!

use the following in your asp.

you need to change/add the SSIEnableCmdDirective.

goto the microsoft link below to change the registry

You may want to look at the following page also!!


This basically tells you that #exec cmd etc... etc.. does not work with IIS 5.1

Happy coding..
