Here is an example i created for someone else in this newsgroup, it
starts CMD.exe (console), and has it run ipconfig /renew without the
window itself showing up, you can look at the code & change it to suit
your needs.

private void start()
{
System.Diagnost ics.Process p = new
System.Diagnost ics.Process();
System.IO.Strea mWriter sw;
System.IO.Strea mReader sr;
System.IO.Strea mReader err;

System.Diagnost ics.ProcessStar tInfo psI = new
System.Diagnost ics.ProcessStar tInfo("cmd");
psI.UseShellExe cute = false;
psI.RedirectSta ndardInput = true;
psI.RedirectSta ndardOutput = true;
psI.RedirectSta ndardError = true;
psI.CreateNoWin dow = true;
p.StartInfo = psI;

p.Start();
sw = p.StandardInput ;
sr = p.StandardOutpu t;
err = p.StandardError ;

sw.AutoFlush = true;
sw.WriteLine("i pconfig /renew");
sw.Close();

System.Diagnost ics.Debug.Write Line("Returned Info: " +
sr.ReadToEnd()) ;
System.Diagnost ics.Debug.Write Line("Errors: " +
err.ReadToEnd() );
}

Hi, can I detect whether my class is running within the context of a Console application, vs say a WinForm's application ? also does anyone know whether the compiler or runtime is smart enough to avoid the overhead of writing to the console if it is not visible, eg I am running inside a WinForm application. thanks

Hello! When you have windows forms you have the same possibility as when you have a Console application to use Console.Writeln to write whatever on the screen. Now to my question: Is it possible to use Console.Writeln when you have a Webservice. I don't think it's possible but just to be sure I ask you?
