Run the SAP GUI with SW_FORCEMINIMIZE flag or SW_HIDE in STARTUPINFO structure of CreateProcess WINAPI call.

STARTUPINFO si;
    PROCESS_INFORMATION pi;

    ZeroMemory( &si, sizeof(si) );
    si.cb = sizeof(si);
    si.dwFlags = STARTF_USESSHOWWINDOW;
    si.wShowWindow = // SW_HIDE or SW_FORCEMINIMIZE
    ZeroMemory( &pi, sizeof(pi) );
 
    if( !CreateProcess( NULL,   
        "SAP GUI command line...",        // Command line
        NULL,           // Process handle not inheritable
        NULL,           // Thread handle not inheritable
        FALSE,          // Set handle inheritance to FALSE
        0,              // No creation flags
        NULL,           // Use parent's environment block
        NULL,           // Use parent's starting directory 
        &si,            // Pointer to STARTUPINFO structure
        &pi )           // Pointer to PROCESS_INFORMATION structure
    ) 
    {
        printf( "CreateProcess failed (%d).\n", GetLastError() );
        return;
    }

I'm sorry it is C++ code. I should have posted the documentation reference too :
