Re: Hiding console when running Cygwin utility from Task Scheduler.

Why did no one mention:

$ /usr/bin/nohup --help
Usage: /usr/bin/nohup COMMAND [ARG]...
  or:  /usr/bin/nohup OPTION
Run COMMAND, ignoring hangup signals.

      --help     display this help and exit
      --version  output version information and exit

If standard input is a terminal, redirect it from an unreadable file.
If standard output is a terminal, append output to 'nohup.out' if possible,
'$HOME/nohup.out' otherwise.
If standard error is a terminal, redirect it to standard output.
To save output to FILE, use '/usr/bin/nohup COMMAND > FILE'.

NOTE: your shell may have its own version of nohup, which usually supersedes
the version described here.  Please refer to your shell's documentation
for details about the options it supports.
