GRASS 7 on windows starts with minimized CMD window
|Reported by:||marisn||Owned by:|
This is an inverse bug of #1891
Steps to reproduce:
- Install Wingrass on a clean machine (without previous GRASS 7 install or just remove AppData/Roaming/GRASS7 folder)
- Click on "GRASS GIS 7.0.0svn GUI" icon to launch GRASS
- Observe how GRASS fails to start.
Actual behaviour - GRASS starts a minimized CMD window with a welcome message and prompt "Press Enter to continue". Unless user notices minimized CMD window and makes a correct guess to restore the window to read any messages there, he waits forever for GRASS to start.
Expected behaviour - GRASS starts with normal (non-minimized) CMD window thus allowing user to read the Welcome message and press Enter to launch GUI.
I had a chance to observe how 20 persons were hit by this bug. Thus a claim "it doesn't affect users" is not a valid one.
Tested on Wingrass 7.0.0 yesterdays nightly.
Setting as a blocker for 7.0 release, as 1) it is ruining the first impression about GRASS GIS and 2) it is trivial to fix.
