Running VBScripts from servlet.

Hi everyone. I'm having a problem running a VBscript from my servlet.
I'm getting the runtime of windows and calling "cscript" command and
passing the VBscript. This works fine in a normal java application running on
the machine but fails in the servlet. What i'm doing is getting processor load.

The first line to be returned from calling the VBscript is "Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.8",
so it works up until then but when it gets to the data being returned it crashes. Hope I explained myself
correctly. Anybody any ideas what's going wrong? Thanks

No problem. I thought there might of been a problem with VBscripts being ran on a servlet but it was human error at the end of the day.
I agree. Here's the link:
