opening a word doc in word not browser

Posts: n/a
I have been banging my head trying to find a way either in classic asp
or asp dot net to get a word document to open in word, and not use the
browser. I have tried (in classic asp):

Response.ContentType = "application/ms-word"
Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition", "attachment;

too no avail. The documents are on a network drive. Do I have to
create a virtual drive in IIS and refer to that in order to open docs
on a network share? My users won't like the browser based doc so I am
looking for something that can call word like the shellExecute funtion
in vb.

Any help is appreciated.
