Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Use Run with the opt_flag parameter set to a suitable value. Something like this should work: ;)

$iPID = Run("YourExe.exe", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
While 1
    $sLine = StdoutRead($iPID)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    If StringLen($sLine) > 0 Then ConsoleWrite("+>> " & $sLine & @CRLF)
