Thanks for your response. Possible this would solve my problem. But i am struck up at the inital levels for incorporating this code into my main code . I tried to run the code provided by you. For compiling it, I needed to added #if (_WIN32_WINNT >= 0x0500)
BOOL WINAPI GetConsoleDisplayMode(LPDWORD);
HWND WINAPI GetConsoleWindow(void);
to wincon.h. The dummy code is compiling and running fine but I when I incorporated the same code inside my main code(on the same machine but inside a different project), i am getting the compilation warning:
'GetConsoleWindow' undefined; assuming extern returning int
Possibly I am missing something while linking. Plz guide me what exactly should i search for in the project settings or else where.
