Compiling in 6.0

I just bought VC6 and really like it, but one thing bothers me:  When I compile, the screen goes blank as if the compiler is running from a DOS session and then returns to the Developer's Studio window in due course (after its done linking, I think).  Its annoying and it takes extra time.  Is this proper behavior or is there a parameter set somewhere that's making the compiler execute from a batch file or something.  I went from version 4 to 6, so I don't know if there was a design change somewhere in the process.

That never happens to me in 5.0.  Must be 6.0 specific.

Bingo!  I changed the console from full screen to windowed and it worked.  I don't quite understand the correlation between my VC compiler and the default console mode, but I'm glad it worked.  Thanks

OK... thee correlation is very simple... VC6 runs compiler as console application redirrecting stdout and stderr to itself :)..
