hi,

i want to integrate VB.NET with command window.
in fact, i want the interface(built on VB.NET) to open the command window and it should automatically change the path to C:\Perl\eg and then it has to execute automatically the file what i specified. for this i already used the code given below .

Shell("cmd.exe /k cd C:\Perl\eg", vbNormalFocus)

when i add this code, its opening the command window and the path is changed to C:\Perl\eg. but i need to type the below command on command prompt after changing the path to execute the perl code.

ex: perl filename.pl

i hope somebody helps with this as early as possible.

thank u.

This can be easily done by putting the commands in a batch file and just call the batch file using Shell command. let me know.
