Is it possible that the .doc file isn't in your system's PATH on those
machines that don't work? Have you tried calling up the .doc file with a
full path to it?

Thanks for you kind reply.
I have tested with the PATH veriable and full path name also. If i doesn't
give any verb to shellExecuteEx it just opens the document. but if i pass
Verb as "Print", neither it opens document nor it prints.
