I am not doing this from ASP, ASP.NET or any other web application.  This is being executed from the command line.
I have Googled for an answer and had no success.  I have searched here as well.
I am attempting to execute an external application, CLEANMGR.EXE, using VBScript's RUN method.

-----------------------------------------------------------
DIM oRun
 state="40"
 cmmd="cleanmgr.exe /sagerun:" & state
 Set oWshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 Set oRun = oWshell.Run(cmmd, 6 , True )
-----------------------------------------------------------
This causes an 800A01A8 error in the line
 
 Set oRun = oWshell.Run(cmmd, 6 , True )

after the external program executes and completes successfully.

I have resolved this issue.

Removing the SET from the beginning of the line fixed the issue.
