Hello Experts,

I have develop a small vb.net app for decompilation of chm's....but i am stuck at getting error as Win32Exception was unhandled.

Can you please help me to get rid of this, where i am wrong?

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Security.AccessControl
Imports System.Diagnostics
Public Class Form1
    Private mstrFolderCHMFiles As String = ""
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim foldername As String
        If FolderBrowserDialog1.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            foldername = FolderBrowserDialog1.SelectedPath()
        Else
            Dim Results As DialogResult = FolderBrowserDialog1.ShowDialog
            If Results = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel Then
                Return
            End If
            Exit Sub
        End If
        mstrFolderCHMFiles = FolderBrowserDialog1.SelectedPath()

        Application.Exit()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Dim filename As String
        Dim mydir As New DirectoryInfo(mstrFolderCHMFiles)
        Dim f As FileInfo() = mydir.GetFiles("*.chm")
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To f.Length - 1
            filename = f(i).FullName
            'Create folder based on filename
            Dim sDir As String = f(i).DirectoryName & "\" & f(i).Name.Replace(f(i).Extension, "")
            If Not (Directory.Exists(sDir)) Then
                Directory.CreateDirectory(sDir)
                Dim startinfo As New ProcessStartInfo
                Dim p As New Process
                startinfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Normal
                startinfo.ErrorDialog = False
                startinfo.FileName = "C:\WINDOWS\hh.exe -decompile " + sDir + "   " + filename
                'startinfo.Arguments = "-decompile"
                'startinfo.Arguments = sDir
                'startinfo.Arguments = filename
                startinfo.UseShellExecute = False
                Process.Start(startinfo)                                ''''''getting error at this location...
            End If

Hi ShaileshShinde,

Try catching the error. Like this....

        Try
            Process.Start(startinfo)
        Catch Win32ex As System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception
            MsgBox(Win32ex.Message)
        End Try

Regards,

Wayne

mhm... try it this way:

startinfo.FileName = "C:\WINDOWS\hh.exe"
startinfo.Arguments = "-decompile " + sDir + "   " + filename

I think your problem may be that you mixed up filename and arguments!

Hope this helps!

Best regards

Mhm i would guess that (becouse of Process is working assynchrone) that you're simply starting processes faster than they can worked! Do the background processes close after a while?

best regards
