Hello,

I have a batch file which I want to execute on the server from webapplication developer in asp.net

But when I use below code to run the batch file, I get access denied error.
C#
ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo();
        psi.FileName = Server.MapPath(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Path"]) + "TestingApplication.bat";
       

        Process proc = new Process();
        proc.StartInfo = psi;
        proc.Start();

Batch file is placed in the bin folder of the application.

My web application is using forms authentication.
I need to know how to provide premissions for execution of this batch file.

If you run the batch file manually do you get the same error?

When I run the batch file manually it executes properly.
Even if I schedule this same batch file, it will execute.

Web app processes run at a lower security level than users so you must make sure your web process has access to the batch file and what it is doing within that file.
