How to get Node.js window to open using AppiumServiceBuilder


I am able to programmatically start the appium server (1.6.3) using AppiumServiceBuilder but it doesn’t open the node.js window so I can’t see the logs as the test is running. Is there a way to force it to open the window?

Here is my current code to start the server:

AppiumServiceBuilder appiumStart = new AppiumServiceBuilder()
    .WithAppiumJS(new System.IO.FileInfo(@"C:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\appium\build\lib\main.js"))
AppiumLocalService localService = appiumStart.Build();

Any help much appreciated! If there is a way to just save the logs to a file each time I run a test, that would be fine too but I would prefer to have the window open so I can see it in motion.
