process.start() program hangs

hello,

if i start a program (an exe-file) with Process.Start(. ..) I don't have the
required permissions that the programm needs (i could start the programm but
the program needs special rights). So I added the StartInfo.UserN ame and
Password to the Process. Now the program starts, but it hangs... nothing
happens. In the task-manager the process is created, but it doesn't do
anything - no cpu-load and no change of memory-usage.

What could be the problem? Why hangs the programm? I've tried also an other
programm e.g. "notepad.ex e" .. this also "hangs".

here is my code:
p.StartInfo.Fil eName = @"c:\myprog.exe ";
p.StartInfo.Arg uments = "myArgument s";
p.StartInfo.Use rName = @"Administrator ";
System.Security .SecureString ss = new System.Security .SecureString() ;
ss.AppendChar(' M');
ss.AppendChar(' Y');
ss.AppendChar(' P');
ss.AppendChar(' W');
p.StartInfo.Pas sword = ss;
p.StartInfo.Use ShellExecute = false;
p.StartInfo.Red irectStandardEr ror = true;
p.StartInfo.Red irectStandardOu tput = true;
p.StartInfo.Cre ateNoWindow = true;
p.Start();
p.WaitForExit() ;

thanks in advance,

alex

most likely the exe uses a window, and just hangs if it can not create one
(say notepad.exe). you can only run console apps from asp.net.

What does this process do? Can you run it manually? does it require user
input? Have you followed the suggestions listed provided?

hi,
the application i want to start is "svn.exe" (Subversion - perhaps you know)
.... If I run it without setting a username and password it starts, but then
it hasn't enough rights to fullfill its task and it gives an error message.
and when i start it with an username and passoword it "hangs". It does
nothing... no error message .. nothing ... it simply hangs and is in the
taskmanger visible. .. with constant ram-usage and no cpu-activity.

what could that be?
