The console window is pop up everytime when the batch file is launched. Is
is possible to tell scheduler hide the console window some how?

Try this:
CMD /C START /MIN your.CMD

For detailed information, see CMD /? and START /?

This WSH/VBScript will run your batch file in a hidden window.

'MyCmd.vbs
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
cmd = "C:\bin\scripts\MyCmd.cmd"
Return = WshShell.Run(cmd, 0, True)
set WshShell = Nothing
