I have the following C# code.  I want it to call the C:\tracd.bat file and keep it running.
Then on stop close the process.  Any ideas?
protected override void OnStart(string[] args)
            Process process = new Process();
            // Configure the process using the StartInfo properties.
            process.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\tracd.bat";
            process.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
            process.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
        protected override void OnStop()
