[Windows Version] Two program windows pop up #327

When double clicking the executable, the command prompt opens up as well as the main program.
It seems the fix to this problem is to use pythonw.exe to run your script instead of python.exe.

This issue is related to PyInstaller packaging.

The command prompt window contains the program debug output. The open window makes it easier for users to report issues and copy and paste this output into the issue. This is useful while we work to improve the functionality and stability of Manuskript.

When Manuskript is more stable we can look into different packaging options for Windows.

A user reported the following Windows 10 workaround:

If you’re on Windows 10 you can create a new Desktop Workspace and put Manuskript’s command prompt in to hide it.

Press “Windows Key + Tab” (A Windows Key is between CTRL and ALT at the bottom left on a keyboard) => Hover your mouse cursor over the Manuskript command prompt then “Right Click” => Select “Move to” from the popup context menu => Select “New Desktop”.

This will create a Desktop 2 workspace and move Manuskript’s command prompt there.

You can switch between your Desktop workspaces by pressing “CTRL + Windows Key + Left/Right Arrow”.

I made a simple launcher that you just put in the Manuskript directory. It will automatically hide the console window when the main program is open.
