Run Program with Switches

Hey.

I'm trying to run my app with switches included but seems to error out. Any help?

Here's my code


'Run App

        Try
            Dim Drive As String = System.IO.Path.GetPathRoot(Application.StartupPath)
            Dim App As String = System.IO.Path.Combine(Drive, "\AppDir\App.exe /Switch1 /Switch2")
            Process.Start(App)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("App Failed.", MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation)
        End Try

Open in new window

Try it this way:
Try
            Dim Drive As String = System.IO.Path.GetPathRoot(Application.StartupPath)
            Dim App As String = System.IO.Path.Combine(Drive, "\AppDir\App.exe")

            Dim P As New Process
            P.StartInfo.FileName = App
            P.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(P.StartInfo.FileName)
            P.StartInfo.Arguments = "/Switch1 /Switch2"
            P.Start()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.ToString, "App Failed.", MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation)
        End Try
