Then tell it the correct path.
Remember that single backslashes ("\") have to be replaced by either slashes ("/") or double-backslashes ("\\"). Alternativly you could precede the whole path with a character "at": Process.Start(@"original\Path\here.exe");.

yes..this works.can u tell me how to hide that console window..

I've added that as another solution.
According to MSDN[^], you can use another overload of Process.Start:
ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo("Path/To/Your.exe");
psi.CreateNoWindow = true;
