Hi Experts--

I have one .NET Exe which is placed in Shared Directory.

I am trying to Execute this .NET Exe using XP_CmdShell Store Procedure with One Argument.

I am refering UNC path for Share Drive directory where my .NET EXE seats.

Below is the Script I am using, but till now No Luck.

Declare @PathTest Varchar(200)
Declare @ExePath Varchar(200)
Set @ExePath = '\\Common\pdf.exe'             <----Shared drive Directory location
Set @PathTest = @ExePath + 'MyProcess'  <------'MyProcess' is the Arguemnt Parameter    
execute master..xp_cmdshell @PathTest

Any kind of Help or suggestions appreciated.

Thanks.

Declare @PathTest nVarchar(200)
Declare @ExePath nVarchar(200)
Set @ExePath = '\\Common\pdf.exe '            
Set @PathTest = @ExePath + 'MyProcess'
Print @pathtest

Run this and paste the output into a run window. Preferably logged in as the SQL server service.

Does the xp_cmdshell return any output at all?

Also i take it that this is not supposed to be opening the application for a user as this will not work if that is the case. xp_cmd_shell runs as a non-interactive background task under the sql service account.
