C# code to start a program

I have a program that I am making in C#. Part of the program needs to check if a process is running and, if it is not, start it. I got it to work fine with the process that it needs to start is on the local machine, but it needs to start the process from a network drive and that is not working. Here is what I have right now for it to start the program:

Process.Start(@"\\Cmn-It-maakes\C$\Testing\NOTEPAD.EXE");

That crashes out with the error: No network provider accepted the given network path

What do I need to do?

Thanks

'c$' is the administrative share.  Try creating a regular share and/or mapping.

I can't that is the share that I am told it has to be in. Is there a way to make it work using that share?

Can't you map the share first using the proper credentials?  

net use SERVERNAME\IPC$ /user:USERNAME PASSWORD

It would make sense to do that, wouldn't it? Unfortunately, I cannot convince the users of that computer to do so. Can I write the code to include login information like with netinfo or something?

From what I am finding, I can use the StartInfo.username and startinfo.password to do this, but I can't figure out the correct syntax...

Those are who you are going to be running the process as not the network credentials.

I think I convinced them to just map the drive.
