Good point. Sorry a bit more info :-)
By "in debug mode" I meant build config is set to "debug".
What I mean by "Command Window" is it "Looks" like a command window, i.e it
a Window Form with a black screen like a Windows Command Window/Terminal
window. I suspect it is a type of "Event Log" window, but I cant find where
this would be enabled/disabled.
I will do a search to make sure I ma not using OutputDebugString()
somewhere. I dont think I am, but you have given me some thoughts to look
