Redirect process output C#

Use RedirectStandardOutput.

Sample from MSDN:

// Start the child process.
Process p = new Process();
// Redirect the output stream of the child process.
p.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
p.StartInfo.FileName = "Write500Lines.exe";
// Do not wait for the child process to exit before
// reading to the end of its redirected stream.
// p.WaitForExit();
// Read the output stream first and then wait.
string output = p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();

Also see OutputDataReceived and BeginOutputReadLine() for an alternative to ReadToEnd(), that will better fulfill your “see output while the process is running” requirement.
