Hi,
I'm writing a program in c# and i have made it so that i can run the DOS commands that require. The Only Problem i am having is that i cannot remove the black DOS Window that appears when the DOS Commands are run.

my current way of running the dos commands is as attached.


Thanks
Process mkdiraudio;
 
                mkdiraudio = Process.Start("cmd", @"/c ipconfig");
                mkdiraudio.WaitForExit();

Open in new window

Use the ProcessStartInfo class
That way you can control whether the window is displayed or not.

ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo("cmd", @"/c ipconfig");
psi.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
Process mkdiraudio = Process.Start(psi);
mkdiraudio.WaitForExit();

// The following commands are needed to redirect the standard output. This means that it will be redirected to the Process.StandardOutput StreamReader.
sinf.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
sinf.UseShellExecute = false;
// Do not create that ugly black window, please...
sinf.CreateNoWindow = true;

Have you tried to insert those lines to the code above?
Can insert after line 2:
psi.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
psi.UseShellExecute = false;
psi.CreateNoWindow = true;
