I have a command that works perfectly in command-prompt (cmd.exe), but when I run it in a vb-script it does not work. What is the difference between WScript.Shell and cmd.exe? The command Im running is:

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "runas /user:"& user & " " & chr(34) & share & "\DOM_Mallar\Script\Robocopy.exe " & share & "\DOM_Mallar " & ProgramFiles & "\DOM_Mallar  /MIR /E /W:0 /R:2 /XD *Script*  > " & ProgramFiles & "\DOM_Mallar\cp_mallar.txt" & chr(34) & " | " & share & "\DOM_Mallar\script\sanur " & pwd
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
WshShell.Run "runas /user:"& user & " " & chr(34) & share & "\DOM_Mallar\Script\Robocopy.exe " & share & "\DOM_Mallar " & ProgramFiles & "\DOM_Mallar  /MIR /E /W:0 /R:2 /XD *Script*  > " & ProgramFiles & "\DOM_Mallar\cp_mallar.txt" & chr(34) & " | " & share & "\DOM_Mallar\script\sanur " & pwd

Try passing it through cmd...

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "cmd /c runas /user:"& user & " " & chr(34) & share & "\DOM_Mallar\Script\Robocopy.exe " & share & "\DOM_Mallar " & ProgramFiles & "\DOM_Mallar  /MIR /E /W:0 /R:2 /XD *Script*  > " & ProgramFiles & "\DOM_Mallar\cp_mallar.txt" & chr(34) & " | " & share & "\DOM_Mallar\script\sanur " & pwd
