[Eric] Get rid of DOS box after starting up Eric4?

Is there a way to get rid of the DOS box, once Eric4 is up and running?  
If I close it manually, Eric4 keeps on running nicely, so I don't see 
any need to keep the DOS box open.

But I couldn't find a way to close the box just after Eric4 has started 
up.  I tried adding GOTO :EOF, EXIT, EXIT /B, CLS,... as the last line 
in the "eric.bat" file, but  I don't get the expected results.  The DOS 
box remains open in the background.  I find this very annoying, 
especially when you have a reasonable amount of windows already open...
No need to have extra useless windows open...

Any idea?

Best rgds,
