I am running a small application using php using the backtick operator (``). when I run the application outside PHP it runs fine and dumps the output in an output file in 1 minute
However when I run it from PHP, It keeps going forever. Also it does create the output files but does not write to it.
I went to process explorer and saw that the application executable is being run as a process under svchost.
It looks like windows or PHP is locking it.
Can anyone help ? Thanks a ton in advance
