Default P95 Command Line

Is there a way to call prime95 benchmark using command line instead of gui?

I'm afraid that would require mprime, wich is linux version of P95.

You could run mprime on Windows in a command-line WSL 1 session.

You could, but I wouldn't put much faith in any benchmarks created under such an environment.

You CAN call P95 in a command line, and run it without guy or even without appearing in taskbar notification area, you just have to run the guy once in the beginning and save the settings (possibly, edit the two config files after, or not). Unless things didn't change with the last versions (we used to run it like that some years ago, in computers where we were not the only user, and didn't want to answer incommode questions about the red/green icon ).

I think that's for the Windows service version.

Nope, what the service had more (beside launching the program when nobody was logged in, that's the main reason one would use the service) was the fact that you could completely hide it, it would not appear in task list in task manager, and the service could be renamed to something to look system-like, so it won't be suspicious if somebody looks to services list. (now we move on the black-hatting area )

But hiding the icon in the notification area was always possible with a line in the config file, and it is even accessible from menus, from the graphic interface.

However, what I was missing (following your post I re-read the OP's question) is the fact that the OP wants to start benchmark from command line, and for that, indeed, seems that there is no "undoc" to support it.

Maybe George can lift in.
