Not sure that I understand. Is your point that because it includes Windows.h, it's a GUI application?
I was just following the docs here:

Thanks for the suggestion but that doesn't work. If I try to open a command prompt from a Cygwin shell (just type in "cmd"), I get the same behavior where I don't see the popup. If I run "cygstart cmd.exe", then running the program from the command prompt will generate the popup.
