How To: Execute a Batch file within Winform

just some code, I don't think there is to much to explain.

Copy & Paste it:

string path = Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().CodeBase).Replace(@"file:\", "");
// get some key from the config file.
string serviceIp = COM.Handler.Config.GetStringValueFromConfigByKey("IpAddress");
string vars = " " + serviceIp;

Process proc = new Process();
// attach the file
proc.StartInfo.FileName = @"YourBatchFile.cmd";
// pass arguments
proc.StartInfo.Arguments = vars;
// hidden run
proc.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
// no need in my case for show errors.
proc.StartInfo.ErrorDialog = false;
// set the running path
proc.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = path;
// start the process
// wait until its done
// any other number then 0 means it is an error.
if (proc.ExitCode != 0)
MessageBox.Show("Error executing in YourBatchFile.cmd", "Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK,MessageBoxIcon.Error);

hope this helps.
