    Running Command Prompt Functions


    I am a week old in C#, so please excuse my ignorance.

    How do I run a dos cmd with C#?

    IE: net use / ping / ipconfig etc etc etc...

    I learnt how to run the cmd.exe file but I don;t know how to do the things inside the command promt?

    Any advice?

    I want it to run on start up, Instead of a simple hit of a button, I know how to do it with MessageBox

    static void Main()


    Application.Run(new Form1());

    Any help would be greatly helpful

    First of all use code tags.

    Second, all the commands you can use are located in c\windows\system32\

    And I end with the one liner:

    More info can be found here.


    static void Main() {
     Application.Run(new Form1());
    It didnt make any sense, nor does it not , but I hope you can see the benefits of the code tags .
