I have been able to launch a batch file from a C# program in a number of ways.
Duncan Mackenzie's blog on msdn shows a number of ways how it can be done and I have tried them. (http://blogs.msdn.com/csharpfaq/arch...01/146375.aspx
But I have a unique problem. The batch file launches a program that seems to require that a command window (cmd) be open when it runs. Because of this, the batch file works if I launch it from a command line, but when I launch it in a C# program, an exception is thrown.
So my question is this. How can I open a cmd window from C# and feed it the command to run the batch routine?
There seems to be some sort of special block or prehibitation on running "CMD.EXE" from C#. I have tried a number of tricks. I have tried System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(@"cmd C:\bacthfile.bat"); but that did not work. I even tried the "start" command line argument which is supposed to launch a second command window. I did this by putting this command in one batch file to launch a second window. But both windows did not open when I did this from the C# program.
