I'm using vb 2008 with asp.net 3.5.  The program writes a batch file on the server using a streamwrite like this.  It then runs the batch file using a shell command as per the last line.
There are two errors I want to trap.
The ID and password are incorrect.
The file was not present on the server being accessed by the batch file.

If an error happens I want to display a meaningful message in Internet Explorer.  How do I do this?
The batch file is attached (with hostname, ID and password changed).

Please post the code that runs your batch file. I need to see what you are using.
Basically you need to capture the screen output and display it in a label in your page. Is this OK for you?

The code in the attachment is generated when the user presses a button.
I would like to capture the screen output and display it as a label in the page.
Hope this clarifies things.

The attached code only shows how to generate the batch file, not how the file is executed.
Any way, you can use Process StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput property  = true to run your batch file as shown in the link below:

Thanks.  I used the shell command at the bottom of the attachment to execute the batch file, but I think your method is better.
