issues starting java jar file with in VB .NET

issues starting java jar file with in VB .NET

(OP)
I am attempting to start java with arguments calling a jar file and other switches. the java pops up for just a millisecond but I don't know what its doing or not doing.

The code I am using is:

CODE

If chksbridge.Checked = True Then
            Dim TIITProcess As New ProcessStartInfo
            TIITProcess.FileName = "java"
            TIITProcess.Arguments = "-jar tiimagetool.jar BRIDGE " & cmbsbridge.SelectedText.ToString & "10000"
            TIITProcess.WorkingDirectory = "c:\tiimagetool"
            Process.Start(TIITProcess)

End If 

I a combo box that reports back the communication port selected.

not sure I have the argument format right.

I do know that the below from a command prompt works fine:

'java -jar tiimagetool.jar BRIDGE COM1 10000'

guess I should have worked on it for a few minutes longer.

I figured it out. it was syntax..

CODE

If chksbridge.Checked = True Then
            Dim TIITProcess As New ProcessStartInfo
            TIITProcess.FileName = "java"
            TIITProcess.Arguments = "-jar tiimagetool.jar BRIDGE " & cmbsbridge.SelectedItem.ToString & " 10000"
            TIITProcess.WorkingDirectory = "c:\tiimagetool"
            Process.Start(TIITProcess)
End If
