start /m prog.exe
   
will start the prog.exe in minimized mode.  So you can exec this.

No, I mean START, try it at the DOS prompt without parameters and it will give you instructions.  By the way, this does assume win95/98/NT.

The way in which you cause the START to happen would be with a system()
