On Windows console applications naturally print parameters to stdout.

GUI applications don't usually have command parameters. The ones that
are not directly callable by the user, like msiexec, show a dialogbox
with the options. I would say using a dialbox to show the options is a
more "natural" way to do it. Although I don't have any strong opinion
on this subject.
