Code:
> start /elevated /inv notepad
Expected result: a notepad I have to kill with ProcExp or taskend because I can't see it

Actual result: I can just click the [X] button because I can see it

Same here, it's not hidden, on XP. But first it shows a dialog (what user ...).
Is that (a dialog) what happens on newer versions of windows?

Not sure why you'd want to do that, but ...

It's Windows, not TCC. TCC sets the hide flag, but Windows ignores it when starting elevated.

After starting it elevated, can you hide it with

Code:
ACTIVATE "Untitled - Notepad" hide

Code:
  alias sysprompt=`start /elevated /inv psexec -sid "%_cmdspec"`
(Start psexec hidden to start a prompt under the system account.)

OK. I’ll put that one back to using HSTART. Apparently Windows doesn't do that if the program doing the starting is a Windows program rather than console.
