Command To Open App In Windows in background

Post by zhanghuanqian » Mon Feb 09, 2015 9:43 am

i want to run other application with parameters in background without a gui with LC which is at "C:\Program Files\".
and how can i know the app has started and exited or not?

use shell,launch,open process?which function or command can hide the app and also can send a parameter to the app?

thanks everyone!

Please only bump a topic no more than once per day. Those who offer help here are volunteers, willing to lend a hand where they can, but have no obligation to do so. If you don't see an answer immediately, please be patient.

You're on the right track with shell.

When you looked up the shell command in the Dictionary, you may have noticed the hideConsoleWindows property among the See Also items for that entry. From your description it sounds like those two elements should get you going with launching a an app without a visible console window.
