Hi David,

Thanks for your reply.

I thought vtk.exe is similar to wish.exe which can be a console app when 
called without a tcl script to execute. When called with a tcl script it 
doesn't show the console. In fact my vtk behaves this way when executed with 
"open with ..." (for the tcl script to execute) in the Windows Explorer.

There seems to be a difference between executing vtk.exe from a link or with 
"open with ..." in Windows.

Thanks again,
