It is often better to use ReadList than Run. I always use this for
running external "console" programs. No command window appears and it also
has the advantage that you can easily capture and manipulate the program's
Note that you need to prefix the command string with "!". You can also
use Import which gives more ways of dealing with the output.
I have often wondered if there is any disadvantage to this (why is it not
documented?) but have not found any.

Hi, please add an option to Run that can disable the command window
that pops up when an external command is run (on Windows platforms).
The present behavior becomes quite annoying when multiple commands are
run successively in a batch job.
