    Launch program minimized

    When frodoplayer starts, I've told it to launch a batch file whitch launches a few programs. Now, this batch file starts above frodo, and is visivble for a few seconds. Is there a parameter to make frodo launch the batch file minimized?

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    Add that as the first line of the batchfile, and you won't see any output. You can also make a PIF for the batchfile that will make it run minimized.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    But frodoplayer cant launch a shortcut, and i can't get the pif file to work properly :s

    Make a file similar to this with a vbs extension.
    For example, my file is called "test.vbs"

    And tell fp to launch it.

    Replace "test.bat" in the code with the path to your batch file.

    Code:
    Dim WSH
    Set WSH = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WSH.Run "test.bat", 0
    This requires you have Scripting Installed, which, in all likelyhood you
    do.
