It won't work.

C# code runs on the Server, not the Client and so any Processes you start with C# will run on teh Server where the user cannot see them.

You cannot run applications on the client from C# code except in exceptional circumstances which do not occur in well over 99% of cases. This is by design,. and for security reasons: if you copuld do it, so could "malicious" sites.
