    If the problem is with the "Splash Screen", and not with the netscape window showing, there's an entry that can be put in the PREFS.JS file to disable it. I don't recall it off-hand, but a 'net search will likely find it.

    Pedro, you should probably be asking the Netscape folks for the definitive answer.

    Essentially, the "Show" state that you specify is passed to the target application in it's STARTUPINFO block, but whether that application honors the Show state will depend on how that application was designed to run. That is, you may not be able to set the initial state to hidden (%SW_HIDE), but you may be able to control the state after Netscape.exe has launched and settled down (disclaimer: I've never needed to try this with Netscape!).

    Can I ask what you want to achieve? Maybe we can offer some alternative suggestions?

    Netscape in background

    Hi!

    I am trying to run a hidden instance of netscape in backgrounf but it does not work
    using:

    inst&=shell("c:\...\netscape.exe",0)

    It works fine with explorer but not with netscape.

    Is there a way to force netscape to open hidden? I have also tried with
    createprocess with the same results.

    Thanks
