How to get rid of console in windows forms

I am learning how to use windows forms and I have come across a small
problem. Whenever I run my program it opens a console window before
launching the windows form. The console doesnt go away until the program
exits. When you use VS.net to make a windows application it makes a form
without a console and I dont know why.

What specifies whether a program starts with a console or not?

I know that this code is probobly not right but I just made the most
basic thing I could.

Code:

using System;
using System.Windows. Forms;

namespace Tetris
{
class MainClass : System.Windows. Forms.Form
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
Application.Run (new MainClass());
}
}
}

Hi James,

It sounds like you are compiling your application as a Console app, which is
the default on the command-line. To compile it as a Windows App, change
your target to winexe.

csc /target:winexe myWinProg.cs

In VS.NET, look at project properties and notice that there is an Output
Type entry in the property grid. When selected, it displays a drop-down
list where you can pick the type of program you want to compile. It should
be set to Windows Application. If you changed it to Console Application,
you would see the same behavior that you see now with the Console window
popping up.

But, I want is that I can have a Main app that will start a new process or kill one particular or all process. The process will open a console exe. But, I don't want the user to close the console windows by themselves, and force them to use the Main app. If I use Windows Services, I'm not sure can I create one dynamically, and then kill easily. But, if using console application, my following coding is working now. using System;

I got a project called "Forms" that hold some forms and stuff in my solution. A argument at startup defines wether to use a From or Console. My plan was to create a myConsole class that would also allow my application to display a Console, but i don't seem to be allowed to do this. I don't see any References that i need to add, so how do i do this.

Hi, I am writing a console application to send a key sequence to an old clunky application on a regular interval using the windows scheduler. I can get it to work if it is a windows form application but not in a console application. Two questions I have: 1) how can I get this code modified to use System.Windows.Forms.Keys 2) I like to pass a parameter to the console app to indicate which key needs to be passed to the application. so:

Hi All I have a server based C# console application. This application must hide its console window when its launched out on the field. So I dutifully P/Invoke'd FindWindow/ShowWindow combination to hide the console window at launch time. The application (for legacy reasons) hangs around by waiting on an old- fashioned Console.ReadLine() statement.
