How exactly are you passing this? I assume the quotes aren't being included? The 1st form below prompts me and the 2nd form doesn't prompt (ignoring the UAC prompt on Vista of course which is a whole other ball of wax), are you doing something different?
>>> import System
>>> System.Diagnostics.Process.Start('regedit.exe', '"/s foo.reg"')
<System.Diagnostics.Process object at 0x000000000000002B [System.Diagnostics.Process (regedit)]>
>>> System.Diagnostics.Process.Start('regedit.exe', '/s foo.reg')
<System.Diagnostics.Process object at 0x000000000000002C [System.Diagnostics.Process (regedit)]>
You could also check out the nt module where we have nt.popen (or os if you have the CPython std lib installed) which takes a single command line (exe + args) and we do the splitting for you - that'd also be compatible w/ CPython.

Subject: [IronPython] System.Diagnostics.Process.Start only uses first argument
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(app, args) should take a string of
arguments delimited by spaces for the second argument of start which
it will pass to app on stdin. I'm trying to run app = "regedit.exe"
and args ="/s key.reg" but it's only recognizing the first argument
(which is /s). If I remove /s, it runs the key but I want this to run
I've also tried ProcessStartInfo() but it suffers from the same
problem. Does anyone have any more information on this or know how to
work around this?
