I am trying to use shell in ASP.NET. I can get it to work in a VB.NET windows application but not in a VB.NET web application. I am sure that it is a security issue so I used windows authenication to run my Web application but still no luck. I just want to run this .bat file that I have written. Please someone help me. Tell me if I am just a loon and this isn't possible or this is dangerous don't do it. Anything would help.
