Freeze Window doesnt seem to work in Startup Script

I have a startup script and it is supposed to go to a layout, freeze the window and then open some files in the hidden mode.

The objective is to hide all these actions from the user. unfortunately that doesnt work. The layout freezes momentarily and then files are opened but not in the hidden mode and it's very clumpsy. how can I get the window to freeze while the files open? Thanks!!!!!

The steps include

 

 

Allow User Abort(off)

Go to Layout(something)

Adjust Window(maximize)

Freeze window

Open(Hidden, "file1")

Open(Hidden, "file2") and so on( about 12 files I think)

Show all Records

Setfield[blah blah]......

 

but there's a another layout that the file has set to go to at the time of opening(y'know the file Option setup)

 

I hope this helps clarify my question. Thanks

I don't think Open[Hidden] will actually completely hide a window, for me it only seems to move a window behind another open one. But it does seem to keep it as the active one.

Try using Adjust Window[Hide] to remove a window from view totally. The other trick is to position a window 'off-screen' by using negative or over sized pixel x/y values using the Move/Resize Window script step.
