Unless the program attaches itself to a console for you or you attach to a console manually in your code, you're stuck with the usual suspects: redirect stdout to a file or use a file stream, or use the GUI way of showing data by displaying it in a message box or on window text controls.

Edward hasn't heard that before, maybe someone else can answer the second part of your question.
