Run a VB app Hidden

By kstroh ·
I am trying to launch a VB application from another VB application. I am using the SHELL command with the vbHide parameter. The app I am launching is not hidden. This works perfect with apps like notepad.exe calc.exe, etc. Am I missing something?

In the VB app you want hidden, use this

App.TaskVisible = False

to hide it. It will not show up in the Task Manager Applications list but will show up in the processes list.

This doesn't really help, but is intersting to know. If you have ANY form in your app, this automatically get set to True. Thanks.

Make the property of your form.visible=false and create an exe.Now when you shell this application this wont be visible. Though the running exe can be seen in the Task Manager.
