I'd like to start a command from the
cmd command line in Windows 7 and have it run completely in the background.
Basically I'm looking for the functionality that the *nix
So far I've found
start which starts the command in a new
cmd window, and I've found
start /B which doesn't open a new window, drops back to the command line, but keeps the process attached to the
cmd.exe process from which it was started (so if you close
cmd.exe it kills the process).
Is this possible? It's so simple in *nix I'm having trouble believing it can't be done, but who knows.
