Is this console application running on the server or the clients?

You have two options:

1) You can invoke the process from the command line using the System.Diagnostics.Process class (example at bottom ofa page)

2) You can add a reference to the console application's assembly the same way you add a reference to a DLL. Then it's just a matter of invoking the correct method (and instantiating the correct class, if necessary).
