Run an Executable on the Server from an ASP.NET Page

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

I should start by saying I know that the below can cause security issues.  This system is for me alone.  I don't intend to ever let anyone else use it.

As part of a much larger project, I need to run an executable (such as notepad.exe) from the Page_Load() event.  When I try this within Visual Studio, it works, I think because Visual Studio's server program is run under my name and is therefore able to launch notepad.exe under my name.

But if I try to run this from IIS, w3wp.exe runs under "Default App Pool," so notepad.exe gets run on behalf of Default App Pool, and notepad.exe never appears as a window.  Task Manager shows it as running under "Default App Pool," but I can't get to it.

I'm using System.Diagnostics.Process.  If there is a better method, I'm open.

So how can I get notepad.exe to open normally from an ASP.NET page?

calling a web service on a remote server from an ASPX page

  
hi, I want to call a web service on a remote server. I've done "add web reference" in my project, and VS2005 has created the .discomap and .WSDL in the App_Web_Reference folder. When I try add the namespace representing the web server (the name I created when I added the web reference) by "using XXXXX;" the code does not compile because XXXXX is not defined. Have I missed any steps? thanks, -me

Getting the exact page causing an error using Server.GetLastError

  
Using vb.net/asp.net 2005.in the global.asax page in the application error page I am getting the exception information as follows: Dim CurrentException As Exception = Server.GetLastError() Dim ErrorDetails As String = CurrentException.Message.ToString & "<br><br>" & CurrentException.ToString() To find out when there are any exceptions when users are using the system, then the ErrorDetails are being auto-emailed to members on the IT team to help in troubleshooting.The problem is this:  I want to find out what page is the user is on when the exception happens, sometimes the stacktrace does not list the aspx page.  Does anyone know how to get this information?thanksMC

calling a web service on a remote server from a ASPX page (web site project VS2005)

  
HI,I am maintaining a web site project in VS2005 and have to call a new web service on a remote server. I've done add web reference, and created the .wsdl and .discomap files in the app_webReference folder.  When I try to create a object representing the web service in the code ( wsnamespace.serviceName ws = new wsnamespce.serviceName(); ) the code wouldn't compile.The web site project is already calling other web services. When I right click on the type representing the web service and "go to definition" it takes me to a proxy class (derived from of course SoapHttpClientProtocol) in the metadata. I think this is what's missing for  the new web service i'm trying to call. Have I missed any steps?Thanks in advance.-me

Read a text file on another server from a web page

  
How do I read/write a text file on another server from a web page. I get the error "Access to the path '//Server2/mydatafiles/test.txt' is denied".

Permission Errors for Users on Home Page only of SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager

  
I have spent days now investigating this problem, so any help very much appreciated! I have a remote web server 2003 running SQL Server R2 Express Edition with Reporting Services installed. I use Report Builder 3.0 locally to build report. If I login via Internet to Report Manager Web Page as an administrator I can perform all the expected and required actions, creating new folders and assigning permissions for users etc. I have added a new user "ReportUser" as a Browser of a child folder. If ReportUser longs on to home page, he receives the all too familiar error: User 'XXXXXXXX\reportuser' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. However, if the user starts at the child folder of home page, and then logs in, he sees the expected page, and can run the report!  This is not very satisfactory. How can I allow user to see home page, without an error message, but not be allowed to click on any folders to which he is not entitled? I am now aware that SQL Server R2 Express Edition has many limitations compared with full Editions (fixed roles, cannot manage Report Service from Management Studio etc) , and many of the "solutions" offered on the web just do not apply.   John Walton

Automatically inserting server-side page events into C# when using code separation

  
I know this is a really basic question and I have spent the last half hour trying to find an answer so please forgive me if this has been asked before (it probably has)....When I create a web page with the C# code placed in a separate file I can't seem to easily add page events (apart from Page_Load). When I open the C# class code for the page all I see in the two drop-down boxes above the code is "Default" (with no other options in the drop-down) in the left-hand box and "ApplicationInstance,form1,Page_Load(object sender,EventArgs e),Profile" in the right hand box. I can't see a way to create the code for the other page events from either of these drop-downs.If I keep the C# code in the same file (i.e., not use code separation) everything works fine - I see "Server Objects & Events, Page, Form1, etc..." in the left hand drop-down and I can create new events in the right drop-down when either Page or Form1 are selected in the left box.Am I missing something really obvious?Many thanks for any suggestions

ConfirmButtonExtender and ModalPopupExtender Server Control with Master Page Failed to find element

SharePoint 2010 WFE Page Not Opening in a 5 Server SP Farm

  
I have a 5 Server SharePoint 2010 Farm - 2 NLB, 1 Index, 2 Node SQL 2k8 R2 Cluster.
I completed the installation of this and finally when I hit the http://intranet:555 (Intranet being the NLB name) from outside the servers (from a client machine), I got a 404 error. Within the Index Server where the Central Administration is hosted, the URL is opening fine. Withint the 2 NLB machines, the URL shows me a login entry box, but even if you give the right ServiceFarm credentials, it does not open the site, it infact just gives me a blank page (no 404 or access denied page). What do you think I should be done?

Adding a server control on aspx page does not add events in aspx.designer.vb file

  

Hi,

I work in VS 2008. Whenver I add a server control(Label) and set it properties in aspx.vb and build the solution, I get the error "Label1 not declared". While analyzing this issue I noticed that the event handler statements for the Label1 where not added in the designer.asp.vb file. These statement would actually be added automatically when I drag and drop a control to my webpage.

I would also like to inform the scenario after which this problem came to me. I was working in VS 2008 , VS 2005 and VS 2003 in the same machine.Could this have caused the issue ? Please advise.

Now each and everytime when I add a control, I am adding the "With Events" code in the designer page to make my build succesfull which makes me to spend more efforts.

Please advise if any settings have to be changed.

Thanks,

Arunesan
