Time scheduling in Visual Basic

I made a program in Visual Basic (using Visual Studio) that can start a program from My Computer and after some specific time I have defined it to close. For example, I want to choose any program (.exe) from My Computer and set start and stop time about the execution. Like: At 6:00 pm start the Microsoft Word and stop at 7:30 PM. I have uploaded in a text box a file (the path of the exe file from my computer).

I have set the start time of the file's execution.

When the time comes, I get an error. I am looking for the command that gets the file (.exe) from the text box and sets it running at the specific time, when I press the button.

That is the command I have used, but is not working:

MyProcess.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = TextBox1.Text


Could someone please help me? Thank you very much in advance.

Please check the paths of the applications. Sometimes the problem is with the spaces in the paths of the exe's. Make sure your software supports this feature.
