You may want to check out KiXtart, it has a SetConsole function that lets you minimize, maximize, and even hide the console window. Plus there is a console-less version of KiXtart (kix32.exe) named wkix32.exe that will not output anything to a console window unless you want. More on KiXtart here: http://www.adminscripteditor.com/langhome.asp?l=k

You might also have a look at the START command:

Start /MIN setup.exe /silent

Or for details, type start /? at the command line.
