If you need to determine whether there’s a console window for the current process, you can do it as follows: 

        [DllImport(“kernel32.dll”, SetLastError = true)]

        private static extern IntPtr GetConsoleWindow();


        internal static bool HasConsoleWindow()


            return GetConsoleWindow() != IntPtr.Zero;
