two possibilities:

1) If you try to execute a program that requires user input, the xp_cmdshell process will hang. Some command line utilities are interactive and you need to set some switches so that it runs in quiet mode, maybe this utility works that way too.

2) The Account SQL Server is running should have the necessary privileges to run the program. When you run from command prompt, it runs under your account while in xp_cmdshell it runs under sql service account.

Thanks for replying me.

My XP_CMDSHELL only required path for .EXE.

I am just trying to call .EXE file from XP_CMDSHELL - it does not need any other parameter or user interaction.
