How to launch an application using Cold Fusion <CFX_EXEC> Tag in Windows Server 2003


We have Cold Fusion version 8.0 installed on one of our servers (Windows Server 2003). And we are trying to use <CFX_EXEC> tag to launch any application as a test from the server.

It works fine when we run from a local machine but fails to run when do from the server.

Here is the test code:

<span style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight:bold">
Attempting to launch Notepad.exe... <br /><br />

<CFX_EXEC CMD="C:\\windows
notepad.exe" INTERACTIVE="Y" TIMEOUT=0 USER="ProcessAccount" PWD="Process Account Password" DOMAIN="">


<span style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
<b>Status:</b> #STATUS#<br />
<b>Message:</b> #MSG#<br />
<b>Err No:</b> #ERRN#
</CFIF> </span> </CFOUTPUT>

Is there anyway we can do that on the server to launch any application?
