    Hi, I am using Win2000 scheduler to run a .CMD ( batch ) file every minute.
    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?

    Regards,

    - Joe

    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
