Calling a new process from ASP.NET web page



Hi all,

I want to call a new process that sends email from the ASP.NET program. This
process runs in background and does not affect the performance of the
ASP.NET page .What I did was to develop a console application and complile
it to have an exe file. In ASP.NET page I call this exe file. Here is the
code to call this process from the ASP.NET page

Dim theTest As System.Diagnostics.Process = New System.Diagnostics.Process()

Dim i As System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo = New

i.FileName = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory.ToString & "\EmailApp.exe"

i.Arguments = "email_address parameter1 parameter2"

i.CreateNoWindow = True

i.UseShellExecute = False

theTest.StartInfo = i


and the error "The system cannot find the file specified" was pointed to
this TheTestStart()

Please provide the rcorrect source codes if you can.

Thanks in advance.
