digitalmars.D.learn - Windows without console

Hi,

I've been working on a win32 program for D for a while now. Everything is  
working fine except that I can't get rid of the console that always pops  
up when the program starts.

I realised that I might have added some code that causes this, so I tested  
it out with the example at http://www.digitalmars.com/d/1.0/windows.html.  
Sadly enough I got the same results. I tried adding a .def file as  
recommended on that page, with no difference. I tried using DMD directly  
instead of dsss. Still the same.

Any ideas as to what could be wrong here?

Cheers,
Boyd

I have this in my dsss.conf: version(gui) { buildflags += -L/SUBSYSTEM:windows:5 buildflags += -gui } else { buildflags += -L/SUBSYSTEM:console:5 } Build using -version=gui and it works for me. No console created. But then the standard library throws exceptions whenever you try to output something. To fix that I have this inside main.d somewhere. version(gui) { pragma(msg, "Compiling GUI Version"); static this() { // redefine dout,derr,dlog to prevent IO exceptions version(Windows) { std.c.stdio.freopen("Nul", "w", dout.file); std.c.stdio.freopen("Nul", "w", derr.file); } } } --bb
