Running a Dot Net Exe via System.Diagnostics.Process.Start

I need to start an exe that i wrote in C# from a WebSerivce which i also wrote.

The exe wraps a vb dll and needs read/write premissions so i am starting the exe with the following code.

            ProcessStartInfo startPrint = new ProcessStartInfo();

            System.Security.SecureString spsw = new System.Security.SecureString();

            startPrint.UserName = "myuser";
            startPrint.Password = spsw;
            startPrint.Domain = "mydomain";

            //Get the exe folder and full path
            startPrint.WorkingDirectory = @ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["printexe_directory"];
            startPrint.FileName = @ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["printexe_name"];
            startPrint.Arguments = string.Format("{0} {1}", FleetName, PackagePrintID.ToString());

            startPrint.CreateNoWindow = true;
            startPrint.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
            startPrint.UseShellExecute = false;
/////END IF CODE            

if I set the UseShellExecute = false i get the following error (seen in the EventLogs)

The application, D:\WEB\idmr\NR\PrintInterOp\Debug\Debug\WindowsApplication2.exe, generated an application error The error occurred on 05/16/2006 @ 10:14:18.740 The exception generated was c06d007e at address 77E55DEA (KERNEL32!RaiseException)

If I set the UseShellExecute = true then i can not set the user that i need the exe to run as and then the exe runs but it fails to create the files it needs.

how can i run a exe under a specific user account from within my webservice?
please help.
