 Launching external programs and grabbing their output


I need to do the following in VB:

Launch an external program, wait for it to finish and recieve its result in
a variable.

Today I do it like this:

I launch the program adn pipe it to a textfile, run a small routine that
wait for the process to finish, then open the text file and read the output.
This is slow. Is there any other way?

Best regards,
