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

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
