I am creating a new process on my Sharepoint 07 web application. I've run the same command as below and works on my OS but not on my web app. I wanted to know why and if this is even possible. Here's code that creates the process.
string filePath = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory,"report.txt"); Process proc = new Process(); proc.EnableRaisingEvents = true; proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false; proc.StartInfo.FileName = "msinfo32.exe"; proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = false; proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "/report " + filePath; proc.Start(); proc.WaitForExit(); proc.Close();
It creates a file with every field as
Can't collect information, example:
Can't Collect Information [Hardware Resources] [Conflicts/Sharing] Can't Collect Information [DMA]
I am tempted to think Sharepoint doesnt allow any process to access the underlying hardware information. Is there a way to grant privilege to run this process?
Am I doing it wrong, are there settings to enable on sharepoint in order to run msinfo32?
WMI is enabled on my OS.
