I want to start a Windows application from a Web form both written in Visual Studio 2005. The Win app displays a crystal report. I am using the System.Diagnostics.Process
to start the win app and it works fine in my box but when I deploy it to the server (uwdevsvr1) I don't get anything. When I run the web app from my box and set the UNC path for the StartInfo.FileName to the Win app path in uwdevsvr1it works ok but the application won't start if I deploy the web form to the server. I have set security to allow Everybody full control on the directory where both the Web form and the Win app are. I've given uwdevsvr1\asp.net full administration rights. I've tried Try/Catch/Finally on the process.Start() and it does go through the finally with no errors. Anyone have any ideas how I may find what's wrong?
Dim proc As New Process
'.StartInfo.FileName = "E:\AgencyProfileReport\AgencyLiaisonsReports.application"
.StartInfo.Domain = "UWHOUSTON"
.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = True
.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = "file:///E:\AgencyProfileReport"
Catch ex As Exception
LogMessage("Everything should be ok")
