Comment #3 on issue 1429 by PhilEHolmes: Microsoft Windows version should
not show Ghostscript window
I agree with you to some extent. The pop-up is useful, but only to
indicate that Ghostscript is running and therefore the compile is about to
complete. It gives no further information about the success or failure of
thew compile - on Windows you still need to open the log file.
To get over this limitation, I wrote my own "Lilypond monitor". It
receives the ly file as the command line string and runs LilyPond. It
monitors the process and says when the process has completed, displaying
the log file result.
It would actually be much better if we could deliver something of that sort
with the Windows install. Failing that, the accidental pop-up is probably
better than nothing.
