[Geany-Users] calling a console application?

I was trying to run not GUI but console windows applications. Here are my steps:

1). Compilation. Build -> Set Build Commands:
%HOMEPATH%\GITworks\diygeiger_mk161\Tools\mkl2mkp_en -i "%f"  

It works  - when I press F8, an empty (black)  Win console appears, but I can see the output of mkl2mkp_en.exe in Geany Compiler output window.

1). Upload to device:
%HOMEPATH%\GITworks\diygeiger_mk161\Tools\pmkcom-0.18.i386.win32.exe %d\%e.mkp --p 3 -s 19200 -wp 0 6

Also works, with the same empty Win console.

3). Run compiled binary in a Win emulator:
%HOMEPATH%\GITworks\diygeiger_mk161\Tools\vk6.exe -i %d\%e.mkp

This is what I would like to be running not in an empty win console.
