Hi people.

i have a rather annoying problem.  I am trying to execute an exe called PDF2SWF from a .net dll whch in turn is being called from a webpage.  This is the code i am using to call it

private string ConvertToSwf(string filename, string appPath)
{            
      string swfName = "";
      try
      {
            FileInfo file = new FileInfo(filename);
            string arguments = "\"" + file.FullName + "\"";
            swfName = Path.Combine(m_outputPath, Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file.Name) + ".swf");
            arguments += " \"" + swfName + "\"";
               
            ProcessStartInfo procStart = new ProcessStartInfo(appPath, arguments);

            procStart.UseShellExecute = true;
            procStart.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
            Process console = new Process();
            console = new Process();

            console.StartInfo = procStart;
            console.Start();

            console.WaitForExit();
            console.Close();
            console.Dispose();
      }
      catch (Exception ex)
      {
            CLogger.AddLogEntry("Unable to load Thumb Generator : " + ex.ToString());
      }
      return swfName;
}

when i try to execute the exe directly from the DLL i et no errors it just doesnt work, however when i try to execute a batch file from the dll which in turn calls the exe i get this error:

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The system cannot find the file specified

Note:

The strange thing is that at one point it did work, no problem, but i was having other problems so i had the change the code, but by fixing that i seemed to have broken this - the fix wasnt related t ths but it still refuses to work.

Any ideas?
