In the "Execute" build command, you should be able to put something like 

     yourCompiler -o yourtemp.exe && yourtemp.exe && del yourtemp.exe

And set the working directory to where the `yourtemp.exe` file will be.

It works OK but it won't give you compiler messages in Geany's compiler 
tab. It will show them inside the command prompt window that opens instead.
