Modify VB.NET code to launch and monitor process and exit code

I would greatly appreciate some assistance modifying the code below so that my program will launch the process shown on line # 8, while keeping the path variables and all related material intact, and then monitor the process for its exit code.

Once the exit code is transmitted, the exit code should be stored in a variable and then the contents of that variable (which is the exit code) should be written to a process status log file located at ("\%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\ProcessStatusLog.txt")

Ideally, if someone could re-work/tweak/add-to the code below, and paste the revised code in their answer, I would greatly appreciate it.

Public Class MyProgram
    Dim MyPathVariable As String

    Private Sub MyApp_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        MyPathVariable = My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath.ToString()

        Try
            Shell(MyPathVariable & "\setup.exe /s /f1" & MyPathVariable & "\setup.iss")

          'Application.Exit()
        Catch ex As Exception
            Dim file As New System.IO.StreamWriter("\%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\MyProgramErrorLog.txt")
            file.WriteLine(ex.ToString)
            file.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

The Exited() event also gives you the ExitCode of the Process:
Private Sub P_Exited(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim P As Process = CType(sender, Process)
        ' ... do something with "P.ExitCode" ...
        Debug.Print(P.ExitCode)
        Application.Exit()
    End Sub
