I use PHP 4.0.4 pl1 on a machine running Windows NT4 Server, with sp 6 and IIS4

When I try to use any of the functions exec(), system() or passthru(), I receive the following error:

Warning: Unable to fork [dir /w > c:\test.txt] in D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\\test.php on line 2.

This error was displayed when trying to run the following code:

passthru("dir /w > c:\\test.txt");

I tried a similar script on a Unix machine which worked fine...

Help Please!
