I am trying to use the following code to execute a DTS Package on the actual SQL Server machine:
------------
        Dim strDTS As String
       
         strDTS = "DTSRUN.exe /S " & Chr(34) & "Server" & Chr(34) & " /U " & Chr(34) & "User" & Chr(34) & " /P " & Chr _
         (34) & "pass" & Chr(34) & " /N " & Chr(34) & "PKG Name" & Chr(34)

        Debug.WriteLine(strDTS)

        Try
            System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(strDTS)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
-------------------
I recevie the error:
     "The system cannont find file specified"

I cut and paste the output from within VB.net into the command line and it executes perfectly.  Any ideas/help?
