.NET Service, WMI & Process-Class and Windows 2003 Server?

Hi all,

I have developed a windows service with Visual Basic .NET which starts
a file conversion tool via the commandline. The tool open the files
(z.B. Word, Excel, Acrobat...) and prints them over an image printer
driver to tiff-files. On my Windows XP client it works fine, but on
the target system (Windows 2003 Server) some issues occured:

My first release uses the framework process class to start the
application. As a standalone application (not as service) the
conversion works for office documents, but not for pdf files, which
should be printed with the acrobat viewer. I have testet different
acrobat versions, but without success. If the application is running
as a windows service, the process would be started but no file could
be printed.

So I have changed the way of calling the conversion tool. Now i use
the WMI Management Class to start this process. With this function my
application converts all types of documents, but only in the
standalone mode, that means not as a service. If i start this
application as a service, again no file could be converted...

On my WIndows XP client both versions works as a service! The
manufacturer of th conversion tool could not help me by solving this
problem, so i hope that someone in this group have an idea what the
problem is....

Many thanks in advance
Stephan
