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.

Declare Function WinExec Lib "Kernel" (ByVal lpCmdLine As String, ByVal nCmdShow As Integer) As Integer
Declare Function GetModuleUsage Lib "Kernel" (ByVal hModule As Integer) As Integer
Global Const SW_HIDE = 0
Global Const SW_NORMAL = 1
Global Const SW_MAXIMIZE = 3
Global Const SW_MINIMIZE = 6
R = WinExec("dosprmpt.pif /c YOUR DOS COMMAND HERE", SW_HIDE)
Do While GetModuleUsage(R) > 0
