How to hide console application
I just have a small console application, which is doing some pretty short term things and closes afterwards. Every time I start this application, the console window shows up for a very short time. I just don't want to see it anymore.
How can I hide the console window?
(Using Windows 7 64bit and Windows XP Pro)

Check if this solves your problem
Goto Projects->Run Settings and see if Run in terminal is checked . If checked then uncheck it and run the application again.
Try if this works.
Sorry cannot find a "Run in terminal" checkbox.
Did I understand you right?
You want me to click onto the Project Button between Debug and analyze right? (Just guessing the names of the buttons. Actually I'm using a German version of QtCreator)
There is no special Settings Button and there is also no checkbox called "Run in terminal"

For windows, you can use the "FreeConsole":http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms683150.aspx native function.
It may flicker when the application is first activated, but should do the trick. Use "AllocConsole":http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms681944.aspx to remake it if you need.

Check to see if your .pro file has this in it:
CONFIG += CONSOLE
If you find this, remove it. Then re-run qmake, and rebuild your application. That should get rid of the window.
Great! To remove CONFIG += CONSOLE is the solution!
Thanks a lot!!
