Running a .bat script in silent mode

Hi,

Shell does not recognise a batchfile unless its compiled bat2exe or embedded within a cmd command.
I got the following working, but it throws up the console window.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Sub modp
Dim objExec As Object
objExec = createUnoService("com.sun.star.system.SystemShellExecute")
objExec.execute("C:Windows\system32\cmd.exe", "/d /c ""C:\LDS\sMplan\lib\setm.bat""", 0)
End Sub


Any one knows how to possible run this in a silent way, thks

Is the ECHO option switched ON in the batch file?

Have a look at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/235 ... ne-visible - maybe something there will help.

@robleyd Thanks for the link, trouble is LO does not like running vbs scripts either from shell. Tell me where is Murbko ?

I was wondering if the start would be helpful, or using a link to invoke the batch file.
