Hiding A DOS Window And Icon To hide a DOS Window or Icon, try using an API called WinExec with nCmdShow set to SW_HIDE to hide the DOS window. To use this technique, you must have the DOSPRMPT.PIF set to run in windowed mode (use the PIF editor). The while loop will wait until the WinExec SHELL is done before exiting. Leave it out if you don't have to wait for the SHELL to complete before going on with the program.
