I'm trying to call a program (and/or batch file) from a command line
from within a standalone VB.NET application - something I would have
done using the "System()" function if I was working in C.
The only way I've found so far is
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("blah.exe in out")
(I'll be creating 'in' and processing 'out' from within my app).
Is this the best way to do it? Is there a way to suppress the DOS box
that briefly flashes up?
Thanks in advance for any advice,
