I created the below program to open a process on a remote computer.  I need to launch it as administrator so I right click and run as admin.  On the local machine where im running the program from, I don't want to see the cmd prompt open, I tried the createnowindow=true,  but its still showing a cmd window when I run my program.  How do I hide the cmd window?

Dim targetpc As String = "192.168.1.3"
        Dim program As String = "C:\Program Files (x86)\AVS4YOU\AVSAudioConverter\AVSAudioConverter.exe"
        Try
            Dim p As New Process()
            p.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\Users\king derek\Desktop\PSTools\psexec.exe"
            p.StartInfo.Arguments = "\\" & targetpc & " " & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files (x86)\AVS4YOU\AVSAudioConverter\AVSAudioConverter.exe" & Chr(34)
            p.Start()
            p.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True
            p.WaitForExit()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Shit didnt work")
        End Try

Open in new window
