[Help] Suppress Output from cmd?

4 posts in this topic

I am creating some shortcuts to start some process at a higher level. This is easy accomplished with, for example:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c start "runhigh" /high "C:\Program Files\AppFolder\Appname.exe"

However, this causes a command prompt window to quickly open when the command is executed, then close when finished. Is there a way to suppress this window?

Set up the shortcut to run minimized...that should do the trick.

I know this sounds weird, but you could call the command from within a VBScript, and have it supress the CMD window.

Option Explicit
Dim oShell
Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

oShell.Run "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c start " & Chr(34) & "runhigh" & Chr(34) & " /high " & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\AppFolder\Appname.exe" & Chr(34),0,True

extract cmdow.zip to windows\system32 and then run your batch file like this:

cmdow @ /HID

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c start "runhigh" /high "C:\Program Files\AppFolder\Appname.exe"

exit
