  2. CMD program run background

    Thanks for the reply. I may explain my need.I want an app to run in startup.But i wish it to run after 4 minutes of startup.So i thought of writing a batch file which has a pause of 4 minutes and then calls the app.then i will put this in the startup.But if i do this as explained,a command window will pop up at startup and will wait till the execution completes.But i want to do this silently without the user being known of it.Is there any way to do this.I dont want to do this using scheduled task.Also i will like to know how this is done in windows as it is done in linux. Thanks in advance..
