WPF Application add Console window for stdout etc.

I thought this would be quite hard to achieve, but it turned out to be easy. I wanted my WPF windows app to run with a standard console output so that I could see all tat was written to stdout via printf() etc from some C code that is linked in to the WPF app via a C++/CLI interface. To achieve this it was a matter of setting an application setting as detailed in this post:

In summary you just need to change the main App’s ‘Output Type’ setting to ‘Console Application’
