I am running a batch file from ConEmu and want it to be as little intrusive as possible. I have set ConEmu to run minimized and close on exit. But.. after the batch is run, the window stays open and displays

ConEmuC: Root process was alive less than 10 sec, ExitCode=0.
Press Enter or Esc to close console...

Command line is (I already tried variations with and without extra cmd.exe, /c and /k switches):

C:\Tools\ConEmuPack.160403a\ConEmu64.exe /Exit /cmd cmd.exe /c C:\Users\test\Desktop\rdp_logout.bat

How can ConEmu window automatically close when batch file is done running?


It's all in docs. Just add -cur_console:n switch at the end.

  • It's not working for me. I also changed from latest alpha to stable. But it fails, command window stays open. C:\Tools\ConEmuPack.150813g\ConEmu64.exe /cmd cmd.exe /c C:\Users\test\Desktop\rdp_logout.bat /cur_console:n Same with /Exit switch I tried first. Maybe it has something to do with it running in admin mode on my machine (UAC disabled)? – Andreas Reiff Apr 5 '16 at 11:52
  • This seems to do the job: C:\Tools\ConEmuPack.150813g\ConEmu64.exe -Min /cmd cmd.exe -new_console:n /c C:\Users\test\Desktop\rdp_logout.bat – Andreas Reiff Apr 5 '16 at 12:30
  • If you use the switch exactly as I've suggested, it would be working properly! – Maximus Apr 5 '16 at 17:38
  • You are correct. I guess I made copy/paste error. – Andreas Reiff Apr 6 '16 at 6:44
