Running exe files in background

Hi,

I want to run exe from bat file but the exe should run in background.. My bat file looks like
cd /d C:\Folder
C:\Folder\nxslt.exe  -t
C:\folder\input.xml
C:\folder\some.xsl -o
 C:\folder\output.xml >> ErrorLogs.log 2>&1

I tried using a vbs file also but it didn't worked.
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run chr(34) & "C:\Folder\Example.bat" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing

Try changing the code in your VB script where you run the batch file to this:

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run("%comspec% /K C:\folder\example.bat"), 0, True
0

In BAT you can use the START command to start the EXE and keep running like:

start "" "C:\Folder\nxslt.exe"  -t

you can do START /? at a command line to see additional options, like starting minimized, etc.
