ASP run .bat file on SBS 2003 server

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I need an asp page writing that will run a .bat file that is located on the server.
this .bat file is used to fix a program (the program is quite old) when users get locked out of it (happens every couple of days)

the .bat file has been written and works propperly

and i would like it so a user can open a page in their web browser and the fix is applyed

the .bat file name for this can be called fix.bat (or whatever you like i'm sure i can adabt it)
and be located in any folder thats simplist to be run from (i.e c:\ or %windir%\system32 or wwwroot)
