How to hide the command prompt (winxp) on 1080?

Hi,

I was used to sucessfully hiding it by changing the idea.lax from using java.exe to javaw.exe before 1080. However, when I updated to 1080 the trick is no longer working. How can I hide the command prompt when launching IDEA?

Regards,
Nevin

change the following options in you idea.lax file

from this
====================================================

  1. LAX.STDERR.REDIRECT

  2. -------------------

  3. leave blank for no output, "console" to send to a console window,

  4. and any path to a file to save to the file


lax.stderr.redirect=console

  1. LAX.STDIN.REDIRECT

  2. ------------------

  3. leave blank for no input, "console" to read from the console window,

  4. and any path to a file to read from that file


lax.stdin.redirect=console

  1. LAX.STDOUT.REDIRECT

  2. -------------------

  3. leave blank for no output, "console" to send to a console window,

  4. and any path to a file to save to the file


lax.stdout.redirect=console

Edit bin/idea.lax; remove the values ("console") from each of these properties:

lax.stderr.redirect
lax.stdin.redirect
lax.stdout.redirect
