I have this in a .bat file (windows 7):

taskkill /F /IM CouchPotato.exe
TIMEOUT /T 5
CouchPotato.exe
exit

(The couchpotato tends to crash alot.)

The command prompt stays open until the process ends.

Is there a way to close it after the process has excecuted?

I tried /silent after the .bat shortcut, but doesn't work..

Run your application with start. This command returns immediately.

start CouchPotato.exe

Or, alternatively, how about not having a command prompt show at all? See How to run a batch file without launching a "command window"?
