How do I hide batch file spawned windows-Related to portable application development

Yeah, I am making a crapload of stuff that uses batch files, and I was wondering how to hide the windows that are spawned by batch files. Google is not being my friend on this one.

use the start command

At the Run... window, type 'hh ntcmds.chm' has all the info you need, or http://www.ss64.com/

Use 'start "" /b' to hide new command windows. Anything with a GUI will still show though. You could also try 'start "" /min' to start the window minimized.
