While running .5.2, I could use php to correctly hide the DOS window while running my program. 

However, when I switched to 1.0.0, php_win no longer hides it. If it try to output something, EG, echo something, it still crashes/closes. I have all necessary .dlls and exe's in a directory under my scripts. (\backend) I find this easier than fully installing php. 

My whole app (and the php files I use) can be extracted using this installer:

Expected result:
You don't need any special code, just run something normally and it won't hide it.

Actual result:
Dos window is not hidden.

Just tested this with both CLI and CGI vrsions of php and php_win.exe. I'm not getting any dos windows.
