external proc fails on 9.2 windows

Jeffrey Beckstrom


This is what we do in 8i and it works:
CREATE OR REPLACE LIBRARY rta.nt_lib IS 'c:\windows\system32\kernel32.dll';
create or replace
function rta.run(lpCmdLine IN varchar2, nCmdShow IN binary_integer) return
NAME "WinExec"
LIBRARY rta.nt_lib
This is script we run....
ret_bin binary_integer;
cmd varchar2(600);
/* main routine */
cmd :='f:\temp\extproc_test.bat';
ret_bin := rta.run(cmd,0);
Here is what the "bat" file being invoked contains:
dir >f:\temp\extproc_test.log
If do the same on a new server with 9.2 installed I get:
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28576: lost RPC connection to external procedure agent
ORA-06512: at "RTA.RUN", line 0
ORA-06512: at line 10

The extproc_test.log file is being created so it is running the bat file, just
get an error though.
Any ideas????
