It is a most likely a security issue. This code may have worked on your local machine because you are an admin on that machine. The user account under which this code is running on the host is not. Nor would you want anything like this to be executed on a host server. ASP.NET, and IIS, is running within a security sandbox with limited rights on the server, the IIS_USR account doesn't have the rights to start a process like this.
