    starting a process

    hi, i'm kind of new to c# and i was wondering how to start a process, for example, say my process is "example.exe", and is in the root of c drive in visual basic i would start it by using: process.start("c:\example.exe"), how would i do this in c#?

    Exactly the same way :

    Code:
    using System.Diagnostics;
    
    
    Process.Start(@"C:\foo.exe");
    Every passing hour brings the Solar System forty-three thousand miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules -- and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress.

    Remember that the class library you're using in C# is exactly the same one as you were using in VB. Every class, property, method, etc. is exactly the same. It's only the key words and the syntax that's different.
