Hi All
I am writing a application in VC 6
in Win32 console application format.
I want to hide the console window as soon as .exe starts without stopping the exe . this exe do not require interaction from the user.

I want to run the application on a PC in my absence, without obvious knowledge of a PC user, that is why i want the console window to be closed immediately somehow.
If someone is closing it from task manager let it be.

if there is a solution i shall be following these steps

1. start cmd
2. execute the .exe, ( it should hide the console window immidiately)
3. i will stop it from task manager if required.

Do not create it as a console app then. Create a windows-app but do not create any visible windows. You may want a hidden window if you need to handle messages.
