Good evening, all,

From a C# "Windows Application", how do I execute system command on "button1_click"?  For example, the "net send" command.  If I wanted to send a message across the LAN to SysAdmin from Console I'd just type "net send SysAdmin message".  I want to translate that to C#...  I hope I make sense LOL.  Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Tony

Use this:

  System.Diagnostics.Process process = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
  process.StartInfo.FileName = "cmd";
  process.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
  process.StartInfo.Arguments = "/c net send * Hello World!";
  process.Start();

Obviously, replace the "net send * Hello World!" with whatever command line executable you would be running.
