Creating a process

I've looked at creating a process before - using [WMIClass].


With CTP3 we have a few more options


Start-Process -Filepath notepad.exe


Invoke-WMIMethod -Class Win32_process -Name Create -ArgumentList notepad.exe


Set-WMIinstance -Class Win32_process -Arguments @{Path=c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe}


The first two just happen.  The third option will throw an exception because it can't find the instance and then create one.


Three options - which to use.  In this case probably start-process but the invoke-wmimethod is useful.
