Ok, one more question!  If I use this code (courtesey of eternal 21):

                  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();

Is there a way to hide the console flashing on the screen when executing command line commands?

Sorry, fattumsdad:

  process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
  process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;

I had used 'UseShellExecute = false' so that you did not see another window, but assumed that you were in a Windows Application, not a Console Application!

eternal,

I am in a Windows Application :) When I click on button1 to execute the command, a console window pops up for a split second and executes it, then disappears. :)

When I add:

process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;

It still flashes a "command prompt" for a second :(

Oh man, am I getting rusty or what? :)

For a Windows Application OR a Console Application:

  process.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
  process.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;

You can forget about the redirect error statements, they will not be necessary if you are using "CreateNoWindow = true".  Sorry about the confusion, fattumsdad.
