Maybe I'm wrong but on windows installation it isn't posible to disable
dos command box while starting mono application.

Even setting /target:winexe. On Linux station, this works ---well
actually on linux station a console never is showed while starting any
application--- but on windows, /target option only disables that the dos
box opened doesn't write out info to the console. However it keeps on
getting showed.

It would be great to ear someone who have managed to disable this dos
box on windows platforms.
