System.Diagnostics.Process - create new process group?

I need to create a process with a new process group. I think that this
can be done by using a DllImport of the kernel32 CreateProcess and
setting the CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP creation flag.

I'd rather avoid using DllImports. Is it possible to create a new
process group via the .net class library, perhaps the Process class?

Thanks for your post.

No, .Net Process class uses ProcessStartInfo class to specify the
parameters information for CreateProcess API. However, ProcessStartInfo
class does not expose any properties or methods to specify
CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP creation flag. So we still have to p/invoke
CreateProcess API with CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP creation flag.
