ProcessStartInfo.Password Property

Gets or sets a secure string that contains the user password to use when starting the process.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public SecureString Password { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Security.SecureString
A SecureString that contains the user password to use when starting the process.

Important noteImportant Note:

   The WorkingDirectory property must be set if UserName and Password are provided. If the property is not set, the default working directory is %SYSTEMROOT%\system32.

NoteNote:

   Setting the Domain, UserName, and the Password properties in a ProcessStartInfo object is the recommended practice for starting a process with user credentials.

A SecureString object is like a String object in that it has a text value. However, the value of a SecureString object is automatically encrypted, it can be modified until your application marks it as read-only, and it can be deleted from computer memory by either your application or the .NET Framework garbage collector.

For more information about secure strings, see the SecureString class.

NoteNote:

If you provide a value for the Password property, the UseShellExecute property must be false, or an InvalidOperationException will be thrown when the Process.Start(ProcessStartInfo) method is called.
