Description Rogier Hofboer 2013-09-10 04:35:31 UTC
When building a solution using the mono runtime (Project -> Active Runtime -> Mono), for every project that is build, a console windows pops up. 
When choosing .NET as runtime, this does not happen and the output is redirected to the Xamarin Studio Build output.
It would be nice if this is also the case when using mono as Active Runtime to build the solution.

xbuild ToolTask/ProcessService needs to set CreateNoWindow so its child processes don't create console windows.

Should be fixed by https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/91ed5dfbfc34059f42bc7f37cba8d307ccc3873e
