I need to run a dos batch file.. but at the end it prompts with Y and an ENTER.. to continue and overwrite a file.
Any ideas how I can have the Process pause and press the Y and Enter key??


            ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["UpLoadLocation"]+"\\pgpREGED.bat");
                        psi.UseShellExecute = true;
                                    Process process = Process.Start(psi);
