Prolems when calling an .exe file from SQL server job...
Posted on 2003-03-20
I have created a job that has one step that calls small program with "CmdExec" command (Operating System Command). This job is currently installed on 20 different computers. The job doesn't run correctly on one of these computers.
It seems that the SQL server has some problems when using CmdExec command.
When I run the job on that computer I'll receive an following error message:
"Application error ! The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142), Click on Ok to terminate the application".
When I run my program from command prompt I works OK. The programs doesn't have
interface and normally it takes som 5-10 minutes to terminate the execution.
Computer configuration: Windows 2000 Pro SP2 + SQL2000
What could be a problem ? Everything was running smoothly until last week when this problem first came up.
