comment Using IIS6 to run kill process. Executable hangs
Yes, cscript killmyprocess.vbs works at the command line. The process needs to be accessed by all users. We have an outdated web based production system that tends to lock up, and we need anyone to be able to kill the process. It doesn't interfere with the application at all. I created a local user on the IIS machine and am able to remotely execute the process under that user's name, but it still hangs and doesn't work. I also made sure that local user had accepted the Eula which was a problem earlier. In the meantime, I'm using PSexec.exe, which works, but I'd prefer to have an IIS link.

You were right, the Eula was getting in the way. The -accepteula flag though didn't help, I had to login as the other user and click on it.

comment Shortcut on client to run bat file on a server
Thanks, looks like a great option. Since I posted I started going to iis route to run the file, since iis happens to be running on the server already. If that causes me any trouble I'll use psexec.

I think the problem was the object was already instantiated as "oShell", so I started using that and it worked.

Is WshShell.Run supposed to be instantiated somehow? I don't use VbScript often so I could be overlooking something obvious.

I tried that. Same thing. I have a copy of pskill.exe in c:\pskill.exe as well as c:\windows\system32\pskill.exe and still nothing happens.
