I remember seeing something about this somewhere, but i can't seem to find it now. I have a couple of Online Shell Scripts targeted to Windows computers that, when executed while someone is logged in to the machine, display an empty cmd window while the script is running. I would like the execution to not interrupt/confuse our users.

server: 5.3.47927
client: 5.3.47657

Thanks in advance!

If you open the xml editor of the script and change the type from job/ policy to something else (e.g. hidden) then it should hide that prompt

We were using an online k-script that was calling "cmd.exe /c" and an uploaded dependency .cmd script. This was also bringing up a blank cmd window, even if we had echo statements in the .cmd script. I tried editing the xml for this and I still get 2 cmd windows popping up, but I think that may be because commands that are running within the .cmd script because I think there were 3 windows before.

However, I tried the online shell script as the original poster was using just to see if it made a difference and I don't see an option to edit the XML when that type of script is selected.

One "gotcha" for the offline kscripts. If you edit the xml, it will delete your batch file dependency (ex. kace6565.bat). If you try to re-upload the same batch file (from your kbot-cache) it will not allow you to upload it. To fix it, rename your batch file, and edit the script to use the new name.

Beyond that, it works great.
