>From my previous experience using the Process class, it looks like you have
a couple things confused.  I may be misunderstanding what you want to do but
I believe your code should look more like this:

    System.Diagnostics.Process proc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
    //Uncomment next line to set the directory to launch the program from
    //proc.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = myWorkingDir;

When your code executed it was doing the same as launching "WindowTest
WindowTest.exe" from the command line when from what I can tell all you
really want to run from the command line is "WindowTest.exe", thus why I
removed the Arguments from your proc.StartInfo.

Hope that helps.
