"WshShell.Exec error '80070005' " Access is denied.

P: 96
Hi All,

I want to get MAC address of client machine. I am using folllowing code in asp using vbscript:

Set objWshShell = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strToExec = "nbtstat -a " & strComputer
Set objEx = objWshShell.Exec(strToExec)

But i am getting arror on line "objWshShell.Exec".
Error is "WshShell.Exec error '80070005' " Access is denied.

But i have checked permissions for netstat.exe to execute.
Every person has permission to read & execute the file.

What can be wrong?

Is there any other way to get MAC address of Client machine in ASP page.
