Execute Command Line Script from ASP Page

I used to execute a command line script in IIS 4 using Dynuexec. This
is a third part server object I installed on the server
(http://www.dynu.com/dynuexec.asp). I installed this object onto my
Windows 2003 Server and I cannot run the script from an ASP. No error
is generated on the screen or in the event log. I think this has
something to do with IIS not being able to access cmd.exe from IIS or
maybe with COM permissions? Not sure though. I also tried using
WScript.Shell to execute the command line script and still could not
execute it from the ASP page. If I run the command line script from the
command prompt on the server it executes fine. How can I execute a
command line script form an ASP on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6?

Permissions is the most likely cause. If you open a command prompt on your
2003 machine and enter "cacls %comspec%" you'll get something like:

C:\WINDOWS\syst em32\cmd.exe NT AUTHORITY\INTER ACTIVE:R
NT AUTHORITY\SERVI CE:R
BUILTIN\Adminis trators:F
NT AUTHORITY\SYSTE M:F
BUILTIN\Adminis trators:F
RAY2003\TelnetC lients:R

Notice that the IUSR account does not have rights, nor does the guest group.

Enter this: cacls %comspec% /E /G IUSR_your_serve r_name:R

And you should be okay.

I'm pretty new to php\linux and I'm trying to encrypt a file using gpg from a php page on a linux box and it's not working.

In particular, image tags should print out as images, not image tags. Does anyone have an idea...

I've been constructing an ASP.Net application using the 1.1 framework, and have been using Web Matrix for development purposes.
