How do i create a VB application with buttons that will run a vbscript

Ok guys/girls this has probably been answered 1000 times over, but essentially i'm trying to create a gui interface to allow users to simply click a button to install network printers, when they are at different branch offices, e.g. location1 has 10 printers, i want all of those printers at that location mapped, then location2 has 5 printers, i want them mapped too because i'll be going there next month.

i have already got the vbscript files to work using the first two lines of code below

I've designed the form, but the buttons on the form but now i'm stuck at trying to get them to link to the vbscript to run. is this even possible?
I'm using Visual Studio 2008 Sp1, although if need be i can go back to VS 2k5 but shouldn't make a difference really.

I hope this makes sense at what i'm trying to do.
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\%servername%\%printername%

Open in new window

Hi,

Try this.

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("c:\\vbscript\\test.vbs");
        }

Best Regards Tompa
