Hi.
Try something like this:
using (Process process = new Process()) {
					process.StartInfo = new ProcessStartInfo("format", " C:");
					process.Start();
					process.WaitForExit();
				}

Open in new window

There is no Shell command in C#.use the process instead
System.Diagnostics.Process proc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
proc.StartInfo.FileName="your.exe";
proc.Start();
proc.WaitForExit();

Process p = new Process();
p.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\Temp\myProgram.exe";
p.StartInfo.Arguments = "My Arguments";
p.Start();
p.WaitForExit(1000) // Wait for 1 minute leave 1000 out to wait forever
