Like the error message says: The start method can not be called for a specific instance of a Process object. Call it like a static method:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start( params );

If you need more control over the started process, use the overloaded method which takes a ProcessStartInfo object as input, rather than just the string filename. Hope this helps!
