I think on Windows you want the tor.exe from the "expert bundle" -- it is built to give you a window when it runs.

That said, maybe it (the tor from the expert bundle) gives you that window, but the window disappears when it finishes running? I would not be surprised.

As it happens, this was by design. "expert bundle"'s tor.exe have an output, and tor.exe from "tor browser bundle" is silent.
