how to launch a GUI/console application hidden

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

I've done multiple searches on the forum and on google; however, I can't find any discussion about making an autoit script that will allow me to execute an application completely hidden.

The only information I can find is how to hide a GUI window after the application is loaded in memory using WinSetState($title, "", @SW_HIDE)

Ultimately, I would like to make an autoit executable called HideOnExecute.exe that does this:

HideOnExecute.exe mybatchfile.cmd

Thanks in advance,

Look at the Run/RunWait/RunAs commands, the final parameter can be @SW_HIDE if you want it to run hidden. Also, _RunDOS is the easiest way of doing it, because it defaults to hiding the program to be ran, but is just a wrapper around the Run command.

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 XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
