JIT Debugging error when trying to exec app external to ASP.NET

P: n/a
I'm trying to exec a program external to my ASP.NET app using the following
code. The external app is a VB.NET application.

Dim sPPTOut As String
sPPTOut = MDEPDirStr + sID + ".ppt"
Dim p As New System.Diagnostics.Process

'p.Start(MDEPDirStr & "macrun.exe", sPPTOut)
p.Start("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CALC.EXE")
'p.Start("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\macrun.exe", sPPTOut)

The problem is that the two commented lines generate:

JIT Debugging failed with the following error: Access is denied.

errors. The uncommented exec of CALC.EXE works w/o issue. Running
macrun.exe from a command prompt works w/o issue.

Big picture is that I'm creating a PowerPoint file on the server and after
saving it to the server file system I need to run a macro embedded in the
PPT. macrun.exe opens the PPT and runs the macro.

I've tried other methods of execing the program with similar results:

Shell("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CALC.EXE")
'Shell(MDEPDirStr & "macrun.exe", sPPTOut)
'Shell(MDEPDirStr & "macrun.exe " & sPPTOut)

Dim sPPTOut As String
sPPTOut = MDEPDirStr + sID + ".ppt"
Dim listFiles As System.Diagnostics.Process
listFiles = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(MDEPDirStr &
"macrun.exe", sPPTOut)
listFiles.WaitForExit(2000)
If listFiles.HasExited Then
'Dim output As String = myOutput.ReadToEnd
'Debug.WriteLine(output)
End If

Hi Snicks,

Welcome to ASPNET newsgroup.
From your description, you're using the System.Diagnostics.Process class to
execute an external custom program(exe file) fomr your asp.net web
application. However, you're getting Access Denied error when executing
that app , yes?

Based on your description on the custom program "macrun.exe" which will
create PPT file and running macro, I think it is likely the running process
idenitity dosn't have sufficient permission to create/modify certain folder
since it has file accessing operations in it...... When you use the .net's
System.Diagnostics.Process class to executing a new process, it will
inherit the security context(process idenitity) from the parent process
(the ASP.NET worker process), so running that external app from asp.net app
is different from command line(which running under the current logon
user....). What's the server version and IIS version you're developing
with and what's the current process identity of your asp.net app( have you
used impersonate or not...)...

BTW, you can consider using Filemon tool to monitor the file accessing on
the server when your asp.net app try executing that custom program...
Filemon can capture the file accessing failure and we can have a look at
the path and security identity that cause the problem...

Thanks,

I'm running the dev env on my local machine - XP. I tried to run filemon.exe
from start\run but it was not found. I checked the World Wide Web Publishing
service and it is running C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\inetinfo.exe.
inetinfo.exe has a file version of 5.1.2600.2180 and same product version.
The ASPNET user is a member of the users group. ASP.NET State Service was
actually not started but it was setup to log on as NT
AUTHORITY\NetworkService. I started the ASP.NET State Service, tried
reruning the app and received the same error.

Thanks Steven

Thanks for your response Snicks,

So your dev box is WINXP, by default the ASP.NET running process idenitity
should be machine/ASPNET account... You can check the "aspnet_wp.exe"
process's account in task manager when running asp.net application to
confirm this....

Also, the filemon tool is not a build-in tool, you need to download it from
sysinternals website, it's a freeware:

#Filemon for Windows

I checked aspnet_wp.exe in the task manager and the user name is ASPNET.
I've downloaded filemon and it produces lots of data :-) Outside of looking
at the filemon output do you have any suggestions based upon the information
I've provided so far?

If the filemon log is required what should I send and how. Recording just a
few seconds generated a 1.6MB file.

Below is the code involved. Maybe you could just compile a VB.NET app with
the macrun exe code and plug the asp.net code into an existing web site.

Thanks Steven.

<begin asp.net code calling macrun exe>
Dim sPPTOut As String 'PPT basename (excludes .ppt extension)
sPPTOut = MDEPDirStr + sID + ".ppt" '
Dim p As New System.Diagnostics.Process
p.Start(MDEPDirStr & "macrun.exe", sPPTOut)
'p.Start("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CALC.EXE")
'p.Start("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\macrun.exe", sPPTOut)
<end asp.net code calling macrun exe>

<begin macrun (macro running exe)>
Imports System.io
Module StartupModule
Public Sub Main(ByVal CmdArgs() As String)
Dim sArg As String
sArg = CmdArgs(0).ToUpper

Dim oPP As PowerPoint.ApplicationClass
Dim oPresSet As PowerPoint.Presentations
Dim oPres As PowerPoint.PresentationClass

'Start PowerPoint and open the presentation.
oPP = CreateObject("PowerPoint.Application")
oPP.Visible = True
oPresSet = oPP.Presentations

oPres = oPresSet.Open(Application.StartupPath & "\" & sArg & ".ppt",
, , True)

'Run the macros.
oPP.Run("'" & Application.StartupPath & "\" & sArg & ".ppt'!mymac")
oPP.ActivePresentation.SaveCopyAs(Application.Star tupPath & "\out-"
& sArg & ".ppt")

'Clean-up: Close the presentation and quit PowerPoint.
oPres.Close()
System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComO bject(oPres)
oPres = Nothing
System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComO bject(oPresSet)
oPresSet = Nothing
oPP.Quit()
System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComO bject(oPP)
oPP = Nothing

GC.Collect()
End Sub
End Module
<end macrun (macro running exe)>

Thanks.

P: n/a
Thanks for your response Snicks,

Yes, filemon will logging all the file accessing operations on the machine
which may result huge amount of data if we don't capture it carefully...
You can use hot keys to make the stop and capture quickly...

For the problem, I think we can try creating a simplified application to
reproduce the problem. Since you have some file IO operation in your
external exe app, would you try creating a simple .net exe which write a
txt file to the certain file path to see whether it can also reproduce the
problem?

In addition, you can also temporarly change the ASP.NET's worker process
identity to LOCAL SYSTEM for test, just locate the machine.config file
under the .net framework's install dir:
%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\CONFIG\ machine.config
find the <processModel> element, and change the userName from "Machine" to
"SYSTEM"

also, you need to restart IIS to have it take effect

Thanks,

Steven Cheng

| I checked aspnet_wp.exe in the task manager and the user name is ASPNET.
| I've downloaded filemon and it produces lots of data :-) Outside of
looking
| at the filemon output do you have any suggestions based upon the
information
| I've provided so far?
|
| If the filemon log is required what should I send and how. Recording
just a
| few seconds generated a 1.6MB file.
|
| Below is the code involved. Maybe you could just compile a VB.NET app
with
| the macrun exe code and plug the asp.net code into an existing web site.
|
| Thanks Steven.
|
