How to create a script executable without a window

Post by burtcbl » Fri Nov 02, 2012 7:15 am

I am trying to create a login script that is a packaged executable to be run from the startup folder. I don't want any window to appear. What packaging options should I use. When I try the command line option, I get the powershell widow. When I try Windows, I get a message box. Can you point me in the right direction.
I want the script to be completely silent and run similar to the way VBS scripts run under Windows script host.
