    DOS command in VB.net and WPF

    Hi,
    Would you know how I do pass a command line with WPF?
    In WindowsForm I used

    Shell("cmd.exe /c mame -listxml >xmlout.xml", 0, True)

    (the app. Name and parameters, show/hide window, wait or not for the task being completed)

    Unfortunately this line doens't work anymore in WPF
    What should I use to send a command line with parameters?

    Thanks very much for any kind help ;-)

    Use Process.Start() method and pass the appropriate arguments/parameters.

    Refer to this link:

    For the one interrested in:

    Dim myProcess As New Process()
    myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = "mame.exe"
    myProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = " " & displayArray(masterIndex).rom & " -volume -" & My.Settings.mame_volume & " -skip_gameinfo"
    myProcess.Start()
    myProcess.WaitForExit()
    myProcess.Close()
