Default Pass multiple args to bat file from console app

From a C# console application , I want to invoke a .bat file which will copy files from the source folder to the destination folder. The two parameters source and destination folder name will be passed from the console application to the bat file. How could this be achieved.
Any sample code provided would be appreciated.

Send a message via MSN to evandro.paula

Let's suppose you have got the following (BAT) file:

echo off
echo Name: %1
echo Birth: %2

To invoke execution to this file passing arguments, you can use System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo class and Arguments property. Take a look at the sample (console application) below:

    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo psi= new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo(@"c:\test.bat" );
            psi.Arguments = "Evandro 09/08/1977";
            psi.WindowStyle = System.Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Normal;
            psi.UseShellExecute = false;

            System.Diagnostics.Process p = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(psi);

Thanks, but during execution, an error message 'access is denied' is thrown.
