Do you have an idea how to do this? In Windows, console and gui are different subsystems, executables have a flag in PE header, if it's marked as gui, Windows will not allocate a console and stdin/stdout handler will not be initialized. It is possible to start as gui and then allocate console at run time, but this will create a new console window, as far as I know.
