I have an application that allows running applications within a VFS (Virtual File System). For the purpose of automation, I need to build an application that will be able to LAUNCH an external C# (.NET Framework) app using System.Diagnostics.Process which has access to the same VFS. Since I have the capability of building the VFS myself, I have two options I can think of:

1. It would be enormously convenient if there was a way to include the process inside the already existing VFS created by the application mentioned above. So if an application launched using System.Diagnostic.Process has access to the same VFS, then my problem is solved. Not sure if or how this is possible though.

2. If the above solution is not possible, I could reconstruct the VFS myself using an available VFS for .NET. Then my question is how would I supply that VFS to an external process lauched using System.Diagnostics.Process? Or perhaps there is an alternative method provided by the VFS API?

What I have tried:

I have tried searching for a way to do this online without any luck. Using the keywords "System.Diagnostics.Process" with my search just gives a bunch of general information about using VFS and VFS utilities. I am new to implementing a VFS so perhaps there is something I am overlooking.
