run - start programs with hidden console window
Note: This utility is not part of Project Xming but is compatible with it.
run [ -p path ] command [ -wait ] arguments runcommand [ -p path ] [ -wait ] arguments
Windows programs are either GUI programs or console programs (CUI). When started console programs will either attach to an existing console or create a new one. GUI programs can never attach to an exit- ing console. There is no way to attach to an existing console but hide it if started as GUI program. run will do this for you. It works as intermediate and starts a program but makes the console window hidden. This is especially useful for cre- ating desktop shortcuts and using plink (a CUI program) for starting remote clients. With -p path you can add path to the PATH environment variable. Note that the %PATH% separator has been changed to Command Processor style, i.e. ';' not ':' in the Windows version of run. Issuing -wait as first program argument will make run wait for program completion, otherwise it returns immediately. The second variant is for creating wrappers. If the executable is named runcommand (e.g. rename run.exe to runxeyes.exe), run will try to start the program (e.g. xeyes).
run -p "C:\Program Files\Xming" xeyes In a batch file... @echo off SET DISNO=2 run xeyes -display :%DISNO% and another batch file... @echo off set path=C:\Program Files\Xming;%path% run plink -load colin konsole --ls
