Oh boy.. a lot of things can cause this problem.
The first thing I would try is to either change your app pool identity to a user account w/ more permission than the Network service account. I suspect the Network service account do not have adequte permission.

To narrow down the issue, please try to deploy it on iis of your development machine. If it also has same issue, please make sure your ASP.NET process identity has permission on "D:\BSC\PNL\actual\Celcom_PNL_BSC_Jan 2009.xls". When project is running from
Visual Studio, its identity is the account that logs in your system, and it is IIS account while running from IIS. The later one has low permission by default.
If this doesn't help you, please clarify what function of EXE is. Does it need to access remote resource? If so, the identity also needs permission to access it.
I look forward to receiving your test results.
