Operating System:Windows 7 or newer

Command Line Syntax

SilentCMD [BatchFile [BatchArguments]] [Options]

    /LOG:file :: output status to LOG file (overwrite existing log)
   /LOG+:file :: output status to LOG file (append to existing log)
   /DELAY:seconds :: delay the execution of batch file by x seconds


SilentCMD c:\DoSomething.bat
SilentCMD c:\MyBatch.cmd MyParam1 /LOG:c:\MyLog.txt
SilentCMD c:\MyBatch.cmd /LOG+:c:\MyLog.txt
SilentCMD c:\MyBatch.cmd /DELAY:3600 /LOG+:c:\MyLog.txt

Use Cases

You can use SilentCMD for running batch files from the Windows Task Scheduler. With the tool you do not get interrupted by the command prompt window that normally would pop up.

You can call SilentCMD without parameters if required (e.g. when double-clicking it in Windows Explorer). In that case you have to specify the default parameters in SilentCMD.exe.config.
