I have the following .vbs file that works on my Windows XP box, but when I try to execute it from a Windows 2000 Server I get an error stating: "the object does support the property or method: Exec"

Here is the relavant part of my script:

Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set FTP_output = shell.Exec(command)


I need to use Exec instead of Run because I need to capture the StdOut.
