How to launch console app in external window?

Completed

When I launch a console app in the debugger it opens an external console window. If I don't run in the debugger the output shows in the "run" tool window.

How can I always show an external console window?

I'm having the same problems right now and my application throws an exception due to the fact that output is re-directed.

My question is how can I always have the console window be internal?  I don't want an external console during debugging.  Why is it always external during debugging?

+1 to Charles, would be pretty handy to debug in the internal console.

Totally agree. Is it possible to see command line application output inside the IDE?

There's a checkbox "Use external console" in the Run/Debug Configurations dialog that seems to be what you're looking for.

The problem of Charles Williams was still present in Rider 2017.3.1, but not anymore in 2018.1.4.

Can the external console have the project name as title and not 'c:\program files\rider....'?
When I debug a compound configuration with many projects, I don't know which one is which.

O Vagelis,

Unfortunately, no. There is no such option yet. But i've filed an issue: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RIDER-69330. Feel free to upvote.
