How to call .exe from .Net ?

I have to call sfxcl.exe from vb.net by passing paramters. Below syntax works well for .bat file. If i use .bat file instead of .exe , by mentioning the syntax of .exe inside the .bat works fine.

From proc.StartInfo.Arguements, I am getting as

D:/Test.csv,sftp://username:pwd@hostname:22//home/foldera/

Open in new window

But i am expecting as

"D:/Test.csv" sftp://username:pwd@hostname:22//home/foldera/

Open in new window


This syntax works well for batch file execution. Batch file execution takes place in the hidden scenario.
I am trying to have the same feature in the .exe file execution.


 Dim sSFTP As String = String.Empty
            sSFTP = "sftp://" & strUserName & ":" & strPassword & "@" & strHostName & ":" & iPort & strDestPath

            Dim strBatchFile As String = String.Empty
            strBatchFile = "C:\Program Files (x86)\VanDyke Software\Clients\sfxcl.exe"

            Dim proc As New System.Diagnostics.Process()
            proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = False
            proc.StartInfo.FileName = strBatchFile
            proc.StartInfo.Arguments = String.Format("{0},{1}", strSourceFile, sSFTP)
            proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True
            proc.StartInfo.WindowStyle = System.Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
            proc.Start()

Use this syntax for the Arguments:
 proc.StartInfo.Arguments = String.Format("""{0}"" {1}", strSourceFile, sSFTP)
