I'm trying to find a way to open Computer Managment from within a VB program that will then connect to a remote machine. I know how to do it from a command prompt, but I would like to do this without using a shell command. Ideas?

Sorry, but just to clarify - what do you mean open computer management?

Do you mean to control some specific elements from VB directly, or just open a computer management console window (like you would from the command prompt)?

I already found a solution for this, I just forgot to post it.
Process.Start("compmgmt.msc", "/computer=" & strcomputer)

No objection, the author answered their own question.

Prehaps it could be moved though to the correct zone?
