Debug output opens separate console window

I'm trying out clion using Windows 7/and 8.1 64bit, using mingw w64. When I have clion generate the default new project and running in debug mode, the stdout (cout) stream goes to a separate Windows cmd / console window. Is there a way to make the output go to the console window within clion, similarly to how it does in intellij idea?

Could it be because I'm using mingww64?

Joe, at the moment it is not possible to do this on Windows. There is no ETA on this, but there is a task on our tracker, you can use it to follow the progress.

Would it get any priority if I said I'd buy a license if it gets fixed :)

In a related issue, as soon as the program terminates, the external debug console is automatically closed and I lose the standard error and output messages.  Short of adding a breakpoint on the final return statement, is there a way to prevent the external console from closing after a run?  Or to copy the standard error/output to the built-in console?

This is no longer the case when using GDB 8.0 with CLion 2017.3 EAP: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/CPP-8175
