Poor scripting spawns cmd Windows

First of all I'm pretty sure I've done this the worst way possible.  I need to launch "vpncli.exe connect 192.168.1.1" in a command prompt titled VPN.  Then I need to controlsend keystrokes to get through the sign in process.  The following code works, but it spawns an extra unneeded cmd window.   How do I accomplish this without spawning the additional cmd window?

$command = ('start cmd /k cmd & title VPN & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\vpncli.exe" connect 192.168.1.1')
    Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $command, "", @SW_HIDE)
    Sleep(500)
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "1")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "{enter}")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "UserID")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "{enter}")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "Password")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "{enter}")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "y")
    ControlSend("VPN", "", "", "{enter}")

The START command "Starts a separate window to run a specified program or command.".

This should do the trick?

$command = '"C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\vpncli.exe" connect 192.168.1.1'
