Run FtpUse in the background
I have downloaded FtpUse to map a ftp connection as a drive on my machine. It works, but I would like it to auto start and run in the background.
I created a batch file with the following command, then added a shortcut to "All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"
The above code works, but there is always a window. I changed the shortcut to minimize, but I want no window - not even minimized.
ftpuse x: ftp.server.com/path/to/folder PASSWORD /USER:username
I added "start /b" and just "/b", but I think that the command starts and once the command window closes the process stops.
Does anyone have any idea on how to run this in the background?

I think in this instance, you can use RunHiddenConsole in front of your ftpuse program to do what you are wanting.
Extract the RunHiddenConsole.exe file in same folder as your ftpuse.exe file..and change the batch file to include full paths to each of the EXE files, such as:
where capital X: is drive letter where the folder is located [normally C: ].
X:\path\to\RunHiddenConsole.exe X:\path\to\ftpuse.exe x: ftp.server.com/path/to/folder PASSWORD /USER:username
