Executing Compiled Jar File From .NET (System.Diagnostics.Process)?

Feb 8, 2011

Trying to integrate the google closure compiler in a batch job of mine and having difficulty getting it to work.Using command prompt I can enter the following command and get my scripts compiled. (The command is a self explanatory example)

java -jar "compiler.jar" --js_output_file="myOutput.min.js" --js="input1.js" --js="input2.js"

I have tried to replicate this using the System.Diagnostics.Process object but thus far have failed.I have tried

Dim command As String = BuildCommand(CompilationScripts, Me._Output)
Dim process As New Process
process.Start("compiler.jar", command)

And I have tried

Dim command As String = BuildCommand(CompilationScripts, Me._Output)
Dim process As New Process
process.StartInfo.Arguments = command

System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses?

Jul 18, 2009

I am fairly new to VB.NET (but have vast professional experience with several other languages) and am completely new to these forums (so please don't burn me if I posted in the wrong place). I have run into a rather odd quirk with System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses. I have a sample application (source posted below) that checks all running processes every second for changes (created and destroyed) and tells the user what has changed, if anything, in the last second. The sample runs for anywhere between 29-72 seconds before issuing an array out of bounds error. It appears that the Windows system processes, SearchProtocolHost.exe and SearchFilterHost.exe explicitly, disappear from the list causing my application to throw the aforementioned exception. Specifically the exception I am receiving is as follows:

Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.I have noted in comments where the exception is thrown in the code below. If any of you would be willing to try this sample on your PC's or could suggest potential issues with my sample that could cause this problem

My sample code:
Imports System
Imports System.Diagnostics

Working With System.Diagnostics.Process?

Dec 22, 2010

I am tring to build network toolkit for my very computer illiterate techs. What I am trying to accomplish is to embed a command prompt of sorts in a form. I have been sucessful to a point. Here are my main two problems.

1: I cannot read line by line as the output of the process is generated. Rrather I have to wait untill its complete, this is ok for "IPConfig and Maybe "Ping". But for longer diag tests this would take too long and it would look like the app has crashed. So I need to figure out how to redirect the output of the process to my text control.

2: I would like to have the ability to redirect keyboard input to the process. For telnet as an example. I would capture all keyboard commands while my text control has focus and send them to the process and with the problem solved I should be able to establish 2-way IO with the process. Is there a way to do this or am I barking up the wrong tree.

Dynamic System.Diagnostics.Process.Start?

Jul 6, 2009

I'm having a problem. I have researched this for over a week and have not found what I need. I find a lot of great suggestions but none of them work for me.My code and program works 100% if you put a valid program, process or file name in the box but if you don't, it crashes. Also if the program is not registered or in a known path it will crash.

I've tried My.Computer.FileSystem.FileExists(txtProcessName.Text) and System.IO.File.Exists(txtProcessName.Text)

But every variation I try thinks that none of the files exist.I don't want to hard code any of the paths or file names because I want this to be dynamic. I also want it to be a one file program. I know eventually I will need to get into multiple files but I like basing all my programs on a file that can be copied and pasted to any computer and ran without problems.

NOTE: This is a multi-function program. Not only does it start programs but it also terminates them, looks the process up on the web to see if it's spyware, adware or a valid program and it also is a Task manager.

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start When File Is Not Associated?

Nov 30, 2009

I'm using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start to open a file using a string stored in a SQL datatable. It works absolutely fine as long as there is an application on the local machine associated with the file type. If there isn't an association, what happens is the "Save as" dialog box pops up. What I'd like to happen is to just bring up a message box or some other prompt that tells the user what the problem is, and to contact the helpdesk. Some users will be confused if they see a "Save as" dialog box, I think.

Opening Multiple Instances Of Program When Clicking System.Diagnostics.Process

Mar 28, 2012

I have an windows application (created using visual studio 2005) and it also is using an autocad .api. The user runs Autocad and the user enters various commands that will open forms. One of these forms, contains Windows.Forms.LinkLabels with paths to the autocad drawing files they've attatched (.dwg). When they click on the link, I need the file to open in the existing Autocad they already have open; however, the problem is that it's opening a new instance of Autocad and placing the file into it. How can I make it so it opens in the existing Autocad program already open? [Code]

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start Won't Work In Startup When Supplied User Account

Jan 31, 2011

I have a vb.net 2008 application that is supposed to run at startup. After meeting certain conditions, the PC is supposed to restart. Below is the code that is failing:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("shutdown", "-r -t 00 -f", myUsername, myPassword, myDomain)

myUsername and myDomain are both strings while myPassword is a SecureString. The application works properly when execute manually, but give the following error when executed from startup (either by placing in the startup folder or by adding to the registry):

The directory name is invalid

Also, the program executes properly when the last 3 arguments are left out and the user has the necessary rights.

How do I force a restart using an specific, alternate user credentials on startup?

VS 2005 Windows Services - Process Is Listed As A SYSTEM Process Rather Than A Process Under User Name

I have written a windows service that is meant to launch a notepad when a specific action happens. The problem i have is that even though the service launches notepad, the actual notepad it self is NOT visible. I know that it has been launced because i can see the process in the task manager. By the way the process is listed as a SYSTEM process rather than a process under my user name (i believe that is because my process is a "LocalSystem" one).

One thing I don't understand is how to shutdown app1 from app2 how would get that processid of app1 due to the fact that you havn't access to getproccessbyname methods.

C# - Kill Process Started With System.Diagnostic.Process.Start("FileName")

Oct 2, 2010

I am trying to create an app that will perform actions on specific times (much like the Windows Task Scheduler). I am currently using Process.Start() to lunch the file (or exe) required by the task. I am initiating a process by calling a file (an .mp3) and the process starts WMP (since it is the default application), so far so good. Now I wan't to kill that process. I know that it is normal behavior for the Process.Start(string, string) to return nothing (null in C#) in this case. So I am asking how can i close WMP when I called it through Process.Start(string, string)??

Connect To Remote Computer And Display The Status Of Process Running On Remote Computer?

I'm trying to develop  a windows application where i can get connected to remote server and look for process state going in remote server.We have many remote servers where automatic installation of software going on. We have an xml file(installstatus.xml) where it tells us at what stage the installation is (Example : Inprogress , Completed, Failed.)

So our aim is to develop a windows application where i can get connected to that servers and look for their installation status(may be we can use installstatus.xml to look for installation status). Every time i connect to a server, the server information should get stored in XML file(i want to create a xml file where all the servers list i connect to should get stored)

The UI at left side should will have list of servers i can connect to. When i get connected to server, at right side of UI, i want to display the status of installation (In progress, failed , completed).

Use The Netapi32.dll To Enumerate All The Process On A Remote Server

I have used NeServerEnum initially to allocate all of the available servers but have yet to get the NetFileEnum to work correctly. I have used 'Nothing' for the server name and it won't recognize the process on the local machine. If I try to select a server it returns '1113'. This code from what I have found means either 'the file is already open' which means little to me or ERROR_NO_UNICODE_TRANSLATION, just from what research I have collected on the number. The following is my code.

VS 2008 Remote Detection Of Running Process?

May 7, 2009

OK, I was talking to someone at work and he came up with this idea that I should make a program that notifies me if a certain process is running.

There is a process on another PC that I want to check if it is running or not because due to extreme memory usage issues of the program, we only run one instance of it at a time.

What I want to do is make a program so that I can know if that process is running without having to get up and check. But I'm not sure where to start exactly.

My friend said maybe use the WMI. With the WMI will I need a host/client program, the host detecting status of the process on the other machine which sends a message to the client program on my PC telling me if it is running or not.

I've never done something like this before so all I'm asking for is some direction into what technologies I need to be using and maybe some guides on how to go about this as I have no clue where to start.

Sample Code For Remote Process/Application Monitoring?

Can anyone point me in the direction of some sample code to get me started. I have briefly looked at .net remoting as a potential development path, from my understanding of how this works, the remoting architecture would require both a client and remote server component, (though I am not a 100% sure on this one), however if this is the case, then it will not fit the bill, as one of the fundamental requirements is that no additional software can be deployed on the servers which are to be monitored

VS 2010 Launching New Process & Detecting If That Process Has An Error Message

Nov 19, 2011

I am working on a small VB application that listens for commands sent from an Android app.

One of the functions is to extract an archive. I am familiar with how to listen for the unrar process to finish, so I can display a progressdialog on the phone while the extraction is happening, and clear it as soon as it's done.

BUT ... if there is an error/alert from WinRAR, WaitForExit() never gets called because WinRAR is still sitting there open until I click "OK" on the MsgBox.

For Example ... if you try to extract a file that is not actually an archive... an alert will pop up saying "No Archives Found", and basically everything is halted on the VB app and the Android app, and the Android app just sits on a progressdialog saying "extracting..." until you manually hit "OK" on the computer.

As you can imagine, this is a problem if the whole point of your app is to NOT have to go over to the computer.

So... I am wondering if there is something similar to WaitForExit() that will wait for an error and allow me to close out the alert and let the process end.

Here's my Sub for the UnRar command:

Private Sub UnRar(ByVal WorkingDirectory As String, ByVal filepath As String)
Dim objRegKey As RegistryKey
objRegKey = Registry.ClassesRoot.OpenSubKey("WinRARShellOpenCommand")

[Code]......
