Default llrnet startup in console mode

In Windows, llrnet always starts in the tray.

How can I make it so that it stays open in the console mode?

Have you tried running it from an existing command window? (i.e. with the command "llrnet")?

Note: I haven't actually tried this myself, just a hunch.

Yes, if I want to open a cmd prompt, cd into where I want to go then run llrnet, it will stay in console mode.
If I were to script that, 3 go to the icon tray, one runs in console mode.
I want all of them to start in console mode ...

Just got on, so didn't get to try your lua file yet Lennart. Thanks!

Just thought I would share this with everyone, it's actually easier than I thought.

Copy past into NPLB-Start-All.bat :) for 8 cores, /affinity #HEX#
@echo off

start "NPLB-1" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB1 /AFFINITY 1 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-2" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB2 /AFFINITY 2 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-3" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB3 /AFFINITY 4 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-4" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB4 /AFFINITY 8 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-5" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB5 /AFFINITY 10 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-6" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB6 /AFFINITY 20 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-7" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB7 /AFFINITY 40 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe
start "NPLB-8" /D D:\dcprojects\NPLB\NPLB8 /AFFINITY 80 cmd.exe /C llrnet.exe

Now each one starts right up, under Vista 64, grouping actually works on the task bar. ;)
I resize them to 75 wide 8 high, place them on the monitor where I want them to be, uncheck let windows place it where it wants to thing.
I'm in 1600x1200 resolution...

Then I use a nice program that works in Windows XP or Vista 32 or 64 bits called DeskSpace.
DeskSpace takes your desktop and converts it to a cube, so I press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT, rotate to another side and release.
Now I don't see all those cmd windows on a clean desktop

YMMV

I do a similar thing on my machine (running Ubuntu 8.10)--I start up all my prime-searching apps, and then switch to a different desktop on the "virtual desktop wall" (I could never figure out how to get the cube working, though that's probably better since it uses less CPU time ).
