ShellExecute can not run application from com+ server ... :(

ShellExecute can not run application from com+ server ... :(

ShellExecute can not run application from com+ server ... :(

  I have written windows service.
I neeeded to run external application from this, but
I read that in noninteractive apps this will not be possible.

Somebody gave me advise to create another process running applications comuniating with my service (daemon).

I created com+ server, registered and tried to run remote procedure on it.

Shell Execute always returns code: 2. File not found.

Anyway I think that it is the matter of configuration or sth ...

I just want to be able to run application from COM+ when nobody is logged in...

really thanks for help in advance ...
