Batch file help - how to close/minimize window?
Ok, long story short, I am using 2 batch files to launch 2 applications. Everything works great, but after it launches said app, the command window stays open, waiting for the program to close first before it continues on and closes. Is there an easy way (without 3rd party tools or vbs scripts) to force the batch to continue after said program is launched and move onto the exit command on the next line? If not, is there a way to have the command window run minimized so the user doesn't freak out about it?
This has got to be easy stuff for some one out there!!
BIG thanks if some one can help out!

Cross just letting you know that i have moved this thread from General Chit Chat, and into General Programming Questions.
Simply because i felt that it was a better subforum for this thread, and not only that now it will get seen on the front page and should attract a little more attention to this thread.
Hmm after a little google search i came across this site : http://www.ericphelps.com/batch/samples/invisible.txt
don't know it if would be much help but maybe check it out and see if it at least get's your script to run minimized.

Thanks for the move. Wasn't sure where to put it since it wasn't security related.
Hopefully some one will notice my poor lil thread now
Checking out that link now, thanks for the help searching!

Start the application using the start command. Then the script won't wait until it's finished.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
