Hi, I just started coding again, and was wondering if it was possible to run a DOS command in vb6 without opening the cmd prompt. Basically Running a batch file within the form and not opening it in cmd prompt.
Im using this code to create and run a batch file, but i want it to load and execute in the form, not cmd prompt.
If that isnt possible, would i be able to execute my batch, and have it run in the cmd prompt, but have the cmd prompt hidden completely?
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Open "c:\echo.bat" For Output As #1
Print #1, "@echo off"
Print #1, "Echo Test Test Test"
Print #1, "Ping 127.0.0.1"
Print #1, "pause"
x = Shell("c:\echo.bat", 1)
