Re: run.exe flashes non-hidden console window in cygwin64 on Win7Pro-64

Greetings, Doug Henderson!

Normally, I just fire up a screen recorder in such cases. But I seems to have
missed the beginning of a discussion.

Depends on the way shortcut is constructed... I don't think it ever touch
cmd.exe, there's no need to do so. But the console window is really the
run.exe itself. Most, if not all, of Cygwin applications are in fact "console
applications" in Windows terms.

That may at least alleviate the window flashing in the face of a user.
