On our web server, we have an application which was running windows shell commands from ASP page. The syntax we have was
Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

ret= WshShell.Run( "c:\windows\system32\find.exe", 1, true)

As the hardware failed on the server, we had to change the physical server. Since then our windows shell commands are not working. We keep getting value for 'ret'=2 with in fraction of second. It looks to me some setting or service needs to be started on the server. If anyone have any clue, why it is not functioning,  please let me know ASAP.
