I'm trying to start SpiderOak in a headless mode from a command line on Windows 7. After the application starts I would like to be able to close the command line without interrupting the process.

According to the manual, the parameter for no-GUI mode is --headless (https://spideroak.com/faq/questions/67/how_can_i_use_spideroak_from_the_commandline/)

c:\"Program Files"\SpiderOak\SpiderOak.exe --headless

I've tried:

start "" "c:\Program Files\SpiderOak\SpiderOak.exe" --headless

But when I close the command line window the programm closes.

When I don't add the --headless parameter, everything works fine

start "" "c:\Program Files\SpiderOak\SpiderOak.exe"
