I am using Auctex+SumatraPDF on Windows now. I have set them working well, except a small annoying thing.

Every time I do the inverse search from SumatraPDF to Emacs, a Windows command window show up and disappear soon. I've already used --no-wait option in SumatraPDF, but still I can't get rid of the black window completely.

Is there anything I can do to remove it completely, though it is not a big deal.

  • This happens even without AUCTeX. I suspect the solution will be at the Windows system level -- i.e., some sort of run in background configuration; or, perhaps the maintainers of SumatraPDF would have a better idea of how to resolve this issue. If an answer is not forthcoming in a reasonable period of time on emacs.stackexchange.com, consider filing an issue with the maintainers of SumatraPDF. – lawlist Sep 30 '15 at 16:31
  • Indeed, fully take your point. Thanks anyway – Shenhai Oct 2 '15 at 17:11
