    Stored Procedure with xp_cmdshell

    I have a simple problem....

    I am writing a stored procedure I want to use xp_cmdshell to execute a executable file...

    Exec master..xp_cmdshell 'C:\snort.exe', NO_OUTPUT

    Nothing happens....how do I write this so it starts that program?

    Can you run the exe without any problem from the command prompt?. Does it wait for you to hit any key?. The program may be waiting for user intervention.
