run a batch file without launching a “command window”
« on: April 17, 2015, 05:15:32 AM »
Hi,

Is there any built-in way in FARR to run a batch file without launching a “command window”?

There are a few workarounds by means of .vbs files, but it would be much more handy to have an option into FARR for this!

Also, maybe it could be nice to FARR to detect is there is an .ico file with the exactly same name as the .bat file and show the .ico in FARR results instead the generic command prompt icon!

:)

Cheers,

See the help page titled "Alias Listing/Launching Tricks":
add /winhid to end of your alias result to tell it to launch it hidden
or /winmin to launch it minimized.
