Use CSCRIPT not WSCRIPT. The latter tries to interact with desktop, and you don't have one.

Hi,
I can't test this now but did you tried placing the call to cscript within a batch file and run the batch file from asp.net using the Process class.

Windows 2003 - the asp.net user is NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE

Give permission to that user.

Also, does this VBS program expect any sort of input? If it were displaying a message box and waiting for you to click OK, it would appear to hang.
