Is there any way to run command prompt commands from within a C# application? If so how would I do the following:
copy /b Image1.jpg + Archive.rar Image2.jpg
This basically embeds an RAR file within JPG image. I was just wondering if there was a way to do this automatically in C#.
this is all you have to do run shell commands from C#
string strCmdText; strCmdText= "/C copy /b Image1.jpg + Archive.rar Image2.jpg"; System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("CMD.exe",strCmdText);
This is to hide the cmd window.
System.Diagnostics.Process process = new System.Diagnostics.Process(); System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo(); startInfo.WindowStyle = System.Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden; startInfo.FileName = "cmd.exe"; startInfo.Arguments = "/C copy /b Image1.jpg + Archive.rar Image2.jpg"; process.StartInfo = startInfo; process.Start();
Important is that the argument begins with
/C otherwise it won’t work. How Scott Ferguson said: it “Carries out the command specified by the string and then terminates.”
