Re: [HTCondor-users] DOS window flashing

Prior to 7.9.0 HTCondor would create a visible command shell when running certain batch processes.
so I have to ask, Is this 7.9.x?  or some earlier version?

I suspect that this is a change in a relatively recent Windows 7 update.
I see similar behavior with scripts launched with a tool called HSTART,
short for Hidden Start. HSTART exists specifically to start programs
without opening a CMD window. Recently, a change in Windows itself has
led to the CMD window flashing open briefly when HSTART launches.

If what you see is the same thing as what I see then it isn't Condor's
fault. It's something in Windows itself.

I don't have hstart on these computers, but if Condor is implementing a similar Windows mechanism, then apparently it's something I'll have to deal with.

Thank you.
