    Hiding The Console...

    Hey guys...

    I'm running a exe file using the system command

    system("HINSTALL.EXE -i");
    When I use this command an annoying console window pops. Anyone knows how I can hide this window? thanks.

    Use the better methods of running another process, as outlined in the FAQ.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    For sure, they don't call it the FAQ for nothin. Use CreateProcess().
