Hide winscp.com console window

Hi, trying to use winscp to downloading files from ftp every hour, while user is working on computer

using bat:
@echo off
winscp.com /ini=nul /script=update.txt > log.txt

update.txt:
open ftp://qweqwe:qweqwe@localhost/
# Upload file
get /ZUP.exe C:\temp\ZUP.exe
# Exit WinSCP
exit

Testing on my computer. But I cannot hide console window, it is pops up every time when winscp is called and then hides after 2-3 seconds if it connects to ftp normaly, and after 10 seconds if ftp server is offline. Users will be mad if they will see blinking windows every hour :(

Re: Hide winscp.com console window

You can use winscp.exe instead of winscp.com, if you do not want WinSCP to open console window.
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/executables

But in your case, winscp.com only inherits a console window on the parent batch file (cmd.exe). So it won't help. You have to hide a console window of the batch file in the first place.
See https://superuser.com/q/62525/213663

Or you can avoid using the batch file, as it contains one command only anyway. Instead, run winscp.exe directly. Though then you won't be able to use output redirection.
