I have a .exe on a web server eg.  (\\\webserver\folder1\my.exe)

I have a mapped drive to that web server.

What I am trying to do is run a SQL Server Agent job to run my .exe on my web server.

I used the following :

Operating System Command (CmdExec)

EXEC master..xp_cmdshell '\\\webserver\folder1\my.exe'

This doesn't work.  
I have full read/write access to the server

What am i doing wrong?
