hi i use the code below to start a batch file process asynchronously.  the method worksk great and doesn't ever hang (like the C# Process.Start does sometimes).  but i can't figure out how to hide the console window that pops up when the batch script begins to execute.  i had more control using the C# Process class but like i said i couldn't get it to stop hanging on one of the scripts i was trying to run.
ManagementClass processClass =
				new ManagementClass("Win32_Process");
 
			object[] methodArgs = {sScriptToExecute + " " + sScriptParams, null, null, 0 };
			int pid = (int)methodArgs[3];
 
			object result =
				processClass.InvokeMethod(
				"Create", methodArgs);

Open in new window

You can control the window via the SH_Hide attribute of the Win32_ProcessStart class
