I saw then:

poNoConsole = Do not allow access to the console window for the
process (Win32 only)

So the "correct" is do not use poNoConsole!

I saw after:

TProcess.ShowWindow = Determines how the process main window is shown
(Windows only)

I do not understood why the interface of TProcess have a property that
only works on Windows... but works.

Thank you anyway.
