How to Run a C# console application with the console hidden

Is there a way to hide the console window when executing a console application?

I am currently using a Windows Forms application to start a console process but I don't want the console window to be displayed while the task is running.


if you are using the ProcessStartInfo class you can set the window style to hidden.

System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo start =
      new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo();     
start.FileName = dir + @"\Myprocesstostart.exe";
start.WindowStyle = System.Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
