Given what I know of Windows programming, my bet would be that even a compiler would might well need a hidden "window" in order to have it listen for some message or other. Even this might be acceptable as long as I can invoke the compiler as if it were a native command-line app. (I don't think I would need piping or redirection.) Any chance of that?
