This works fine:
CreateProcess(NULL,"test.bat",NULL,NULL,FALSE,NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS,NULL,NULL,&StartInfo,&pInfo);

However, if I replace "test.bat" with "start /b /wait test.bat", nothing happens..
why and how?
Thanks.

"start" is not a standalone executable, it's a shell builtin command. However,

cmd.exe /c start /b /wait test.bat

or

command.com /c start /b /wait test.bat

should do it...
