[FWTools] ogr2ogr in ASP

I am trying to create an ASP application to load MapInfo TAB files into a
PostGIS database using ogr2ogr.  I have spent a fair bit of time dealing
with permissions issues to get the app running but have run into a brick
wall.  I have a test app created to test the conversion online but the
result is a blank page when run.  There is no error message to help debug
the code.  My ASP code looks something like this:



dim wshell, wshell, cmnd

set wshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")


cmnd = "%COMSPEC% ogr2ogr -f  'PostgreSQL' -a_srs  'EPSG:26909'
PG:'host=localhost user=postgres dbname=Foremore password=mercator'
c:\tmp\All_Outcrop.TAB -nln foremore_outcrop"



response.write "Output = " & oShell

set wshell = nothing




The output from the oShell variable above is 0 indicating that the command
completed successfully but there is no "foremore_outcrop" table in the
database when it is all done.  I have tested the ogr2ogr command and it
works in the FWTools shell.


If anyone has attempted this before could I get some help?
