    What program? What window? !!
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    If your using msvc then put your console code in a win32 app, no window will appear.

    I am using Visual Studio 6.0.

    I am wanting the DOS windows to disappear because I am not displaying anything on the screen.

    If you've created a console program, you'll need a console to run it in. If you've created a Windows GUI program, you don't need a console window, or any visible window if you don't want.

    Example:
    Needs to be a win32 app not a win32 console app.
    Code:
    int WINAPI WinMain( HINSTANCE hThisInst, HINSTANCE hPrevInst, LPSTR lpszArgs, int nWinMode )
    {
         FILE *fp;
    
         fp = fopen( "temp.txt", "wt" );
         fputs( "Hello World", fp );
         fclose( fp );
     
         return 0;
    }
    this isn't a console program, it's a windows program. But it demonstrates that you can easliy write a 'console' program without a window, just by changing main.

    Question Don't understand

    I do not understand that code. Am I going to have to use MFC programming to not use a window? the code is in C right now. I may end up using COBOL.

    I am just wanting to do this.

    printf("\a"); //beep
