I've written a little experimental program, using 2 shortcuts, to manage a relay.
The shortcuts are:
C:\USB-relæ\USBRelay\USBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#1 ( = 'ON')
C:\USB-relæ\USBRelay\USBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#0 ( = 'OFF')

The script (the compiled .exe) is doing what it is supposed to do, using the
Run ("C:\USB-relæ\USBRelay\USBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#1")

to turn the relay on - but I keep getting a window, which I cannot "get a grip on", almost all over my monitor, which I find absolutely annoying..!

What can I do, in order to force this window to "disappear"..?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Change the run line to:
Run ("C:USB-relæUSBRelayUSBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#1", "", @SW_HIDE)

This will hide the window when it's run.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to an XP machine, and I'm not going to.
