Default Executing vb.net console app via report services

Need to know if I can run a console app (rptApp.exe) via a subscription
out of report services. Built the consol app, it runs great in dev but
when I upload the app to the report service folder and run it I get a
run time error.


Is this even possible? What are my alternatives if not?

another dumb response but "why would you want to do this from reporting services?"

I agree with the previous reply: This is not an appropriate reporting task.

That said, you can execute a stored procedure as the dataset for a report. The SP can call sp_CMDEXEC and run your console app. You can't run risky code from a report due to permission restrictions.

BTW, If your DBA lets you do this on a production server, he should be fired.
