Does the user that is running you app pool have rights to run the net command?

I'm not asking about the file, I'm asking about the net command.

In default configs, only Power Users and Administrators are allowed to control services. So check if the App Pool owner is in one of those groups - but be aware that this allows for many other things, too, and is a severe security vulnerability!

It is better to just assign privileges to restart this specific service. You can do that with e.g. subinacl or ntrights, both need to be downloaded first (part of the Windows Resource Kits). I'll show for subinacl (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288129 for reference):
subinacl /service "Print Spooler" /grant=DomainOrPC\AppPoolUser=TOI

Open in new window

This needs to be executed as admin, and assigns start/stop/query privilege for the spooler service only.

HI EE

i found an alternative solution for this to avoid all security issues

from our asp.net application ,i add a button with name restart Printers

once u click this button i will add a value to a table in the database

then i create an exe file and add it to task schedule that check the database
and if there is a value it will run the bat file from the exe
