Running a .NET Console App in Silent Mode

Leave a comment

In .NET, you may need to run your console app in silent mode.

To do this, create a new console app. Our app will open a webpage using IE:

using System;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace Carl.SilentConsoleApp
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Process.Start("IExplore.exe", "");

To run in silent mode, set the Output type in the properties of the code to Windows Application:

Now, when you run the code, it will run silently. In this case, you will see a web page open.
