  • Hello,

    Use the following.

    Dim startInfo As New ProcessStartInfo("some.exe")
    startInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden

    For example example for path and exe in the application path.

    Dim fileName As String = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory,"Some.exe")

    Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmarked them if they provide no help, this will help others who are looking for solutions to the same or similar problem. Contact via my Twitter (Karen Payne) or Facebook (Karen Payne) via my MSDN profile but will not answer coding question on either.

    NuGet BaseConnectionLibrary for database connections.
