Suppressing shell windows

Windows XP..Rev 2.8.1

I'm writing frond end software that calls DOS programs using the shell command.


I call this DOS program hundreds or thousands of time in a single run, and every time, my XP system throws up a transient command window which slows execution and is messy, to say the least.


I tried using "lock screen" but that had no effect..


(actually, I've only ever tried this in interpreted, IDE mode)


I'm stuck now, and will gratefully receive all further suggestions....
