EXEC fails with no error

Post by josmani »

I've upgraded a Texis server from version 5 to 7. I use exec to run a third party application which runs fine in command line, but exec fails on the new server with no error message. I works fine in the old server.

I suspect permission issues but can't pinpoint it. In both servers, Texis is running as System account and has same level of permissions on the application. Any ideas why?

The server uses Texis version 7 64bith on Windows 2012.

Check $ret.stderr, vortex.log, and the web server's error log.

Are you using IIS or the Texis webserver? If IIS it may be the permissions on the IUSR_ account that it is running as.

Thanks. The $ret.stderr really helped because the command was prompting with a y/n question after the execute which I managed pass to command now.
