Wscript.Shell run PRINT and NET PRINT returns nothing

No error or any feedback that I can work with.
Code:
set objShell = Server.CreateOb ject("WScript.S hell")

objShell.Run "%comspec% /c NET PRINT \\Garchive\ISLa ser
c:\WUTemp\Prin ter_Status1.txt ", 0, True

objShell.Run "%comspec% /c PRINT /d:\\Garchive\IS Laser c:\WUTemp\test. txt",
0, True

Set objShell = nothing

I can run these commands successfully from the command-prompt on the server
but from an ASP page, I get nothing not even an error. The Text output for
NET PRINT is a blank text file.

I feel something is different on the permissions side because this
code/approach use to work fine.

Thanks in advance for any help. Would a DCOM setting be applicable here?

I'd imagine there's a good chance that your IUSR account doesn't have share
permissions to that printer on your network. Does that printer share
require domain authentication? If so, your local IUSR account will not be
able to connect to it.

While this doesn't focus on printing specifically, the same logic would
apply here: http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2168 (If the file is within
your LAN section)

I've had the anonymous user as a domain admin in an effort to open things up.
Still no error and no response/print.

I was able to access the file using FileSystemObjec t via ASP.
Any other ideas?

How did you make a local account a domain admin? Regardless, you can access
the remote file system? Alright, try this:

net use lpt1: \\Garchive\ISLa ser
copy c:\WUTemp\test. txt lpt1
net use lpt1: /d

Also make sure that your IUSR has permissions to net.exe, and the C:\WUTemp
directory.

I get error '80070002' on the copy line
Also I tried:
Set objFilePrint = objFSO.CreateTe xtFile("\\Garch ive\ISLaser",Tr ue)
and got a "Permission Denied" error.

My anonymous user is assigned to a separate Domain Administrator account
(not IUSR).

I now have several code options to print the text file that work at the
command-prompt but not in ASP. It appears to be a permissions issue in ASP
but my authenticated user has permisssions. I made IWAM a temporary member
of the local administrator's group for testing. There seems to be another
step in the process that I'm unaware of that prevents permission. It reminds
me of needing to assign the launch identitiy in DCOM but I'm not clear as to
which application this would be.

i appreciate your help!

I used to be able to run the following ASP code on our corp machine (W2K Server Edition and IIS-5) and successfully send a net-msg to anyone on our intranet. Last week it stopped working... and I'm not sure what changed. (I had applied ALL the W2K update patches... but... I'm not sure if the problem started before or after that.) Did any recent W2K patches change the way createObject, wScript.shell, or "NET SEND" works?
