Supress console in stand-alone BGE exe

When I export to a stand-alone exe file, I get a console pop-up when I run the exe. While this is nice for diagnostics, I want to be able to supress it for a project that will be distributed.

Is there a way to supress the console in BGE?


you could run the exe from a shortcut and in the shortcut properties select. “start minimised” that way when it opens it will open the console minimised but you game will still be visible.

Thanks. I was really looking for a solution I could hard-wire because I will be handing the file over to some people who are not very computer literate and I need to make life as simple as possible.

The 2.63 Blenderplayer will suppress the console by default:
