Problem with Impersonate on a web service

I have a working web service.  When data is received I would like to run an external program against this data.  I have setup impersonation to use a known-working username and password, but the program does not run.

Thanks for any ideas.
If impersonateValidUser("myuser", "WEST", "mypassword") Then
    '
    Dim proc As New Process
    proc.StartInfo.Password = New System.Security.SecureString()
    For Each c As Char In "mypassword"
        proc.StartInfo.Password.AppendChar(c)
    Next
    proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = False
    proc.StartInfo.Arguments = arg1 & " " & arg2
    proc.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\Program Files\DoMerge\DoMerge.exe"
 
    proc.Start()
 
    undoImpersonation()
 
End If

did you check that it is going inside if condition.

If impersonateValidUser("myuser", "WEST", "mypassword") Then
    '
    Dim proc As New Process
    proc.StartInfo.Password = New System.Security.SecureString()
    For Each c As Char In "mypassword"
        proc.StartInfo.Password.AppendChar(c)
    Next
    proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = False
    proc.StartInfo.Arguments = arg1 & " " & arg2
    proc.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\Program Files\DoMerge\DoMerge.exe"
 
    proc.Start()
    proc.WaitForExit()
    undoImpersonation()
 
End If

I think you are missing to provide UserName and Domain in proc.StartInfo .

Also try without giving password, username and domain if your imperosnate user has rights to create process.

Hi jinal,

Yes, I put a call to an email program in the IF statement, so I know I am using valid credentials.

Thanks

jinal,

I ran the process explorer program, and I can see that the program did start, but it did not run to completion.  It seems hung for some reason.

Thanks
