I am working on an application that has to be installed by running an exe.This exe runs with a command prompt display.As I do not have much hands on in SCCM, is there any way we can suppress this cmd window while pushing the software so that while installation it is not visible to the users.Thanks.

wrap your exe with a batch file which is running cmd /c YOURFILE
You may also use other cmdhide tools like cmdhide from KACE you can find in the K2000 tools folder.

other possibilities depending on your exe.

you can use a VB script to launch the batch file hidden.

 

HideBat.vbs

CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run "C:\NAME_ME.bat",0,True

I've only used these in Kace, but they should also work with SCCM.

  • There are a lot of installers.. but for every installer you can find a silent parameter: Check this link:
    http://unattended.sourceforge.net/installers.php
    There you can find all silent switches ;)
    Have fun

If you have access to WiseScript, you could do a simple Execute Program, then just change the Window Size to HIDDEN from the drop down list.
