Thanks a lot for your help. I have a running Windows.Forms Hello World application. And what really impressed me, it does run on both platforms (windows and Linux).

There is only on little downer in it, that is the cmd that opens and stays untill the I close my app again. Is there a way to avoid or hide the command window in Windows?

Thanks for you help
