AFAIK, there is no clean solution to build an app which is both a console 
app and a gui app.


Anyway, if you dare to use it, you can try my own binaries for Emacs-W64 :


There is a version of emacsclient borrowed from EmacsW32 which is more 
friendly than the pair runemacs/emacs .

Basically, emacsclient is used to launch emacs and no console show off.
