I finally used the poNoConsole flag in the options even though the
Lazarus help specifically states it ONLY works in Win32.
But amazingly it did the job of hiding the console windows even though
my Lazarus 2.0.0 program is built as a 64 bit program and runs in
Windows7 x64!

So the note in the help is misleading...
