Stop second screen from opening fom command prompt

arcross used Ask the Experts™
When I run a certain program (in a 32 bit computer) from the command prompt, the command screen remains open so I can enter some parameters that i need in order to the program to work.
 However, if I run the same program in a 64 bit pc i dont get the same result, instead a second command screen flashes and disappears , returning to the first command screen where I ran the program from.

Is is possible to stop a second screen appearing and returning to the first one?

How are you starting the program and what kind of program is it?

Try starting the program this way:

- open a CMD prompt
- CD to the directory where the program resides
- start the program

Any difference?
