Hi Experts,

      Does anyone here has an idea how to run an exe visibly inside ASP vbscript code? Below is the code that I am using so far. It did run an exe file but not visible, it has an instance running in Task manager. What I want to happen is to run it visible so that I can terminate it easily without going to Task Manager window and I can see also what the error if there is.
set WshShell = server.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
sFileName="exporter.exe"
WshShell.Run server.MapPath(sFileName)
set WshShell= nothing

Open in new window
