Hi Jonathan,

Sorry your advice can't work here.

Tried follows on my small program;

Process.Start ("http://www.mono-project.com";); -> Run
ProcessStart ("http://www.mono-project.com";); -> Run
Process.Start ("http://www.mono-project.com"); -> Run

On mono Command Prompt, also didn't work.

On Windows Vista, create a shortcut of IE and rename it as;


iexplore.lnk works on "Command Prompt" window but didn't work on "mono Command Prompt" nor on my small program.
