Run .VBS script from ASP: (yes, permissions are set correctly)

I am trying to run the code below, but it doesnt give me a message either way that the code executed:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <%
  2. dim w
  3. set w = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  4. w.run "cmd.exe /c cscript c:\runme.vbs"
  5. set w = Nothing
  6. %>
  7.  
I need to be able to run a .vbs from the server side to install a printer on the user's pc. Thanks for your help in advance!
