Hi Experts

I would like to run a program written in php-gtk without having a MS-DOS command window open. This should be a quick max points for someone.

I've done a couple of things like this before, mainly when making java-launchers...

You want to be using the "start" command... that can spawn the thread for PHP without having to leave the command prompt window open...

Thanks for the quick reply. This is how I am using the start command in an autorun.inf file to start the menu program.

open=cmd /c start /min .\php4\php.exe .\menu\menu.php /min

How can I change this to use the /B switch to prevent a command window from opening.

I dont think you need the cmd part in there... try this:

open=start /min /b .\php4\php.exe .\menu\menu.php /min

When  I change the syntax as you have it above and I run the autorun.inf, a dialog window displays stating "Choose the program you want to use to open the file".
