Thanks! Didn't know we can activate this setting for the user.

Some questions though: Should we restore this setting to the original value after LLDB shuts down? And what happens if this code runs on a Windows version before ENABLE_VIRTUAL_TERMINAL_PROCESSING was introduced? I see there some fallback code, but it's not clear to me what it does and what will happen on older platforms.

Comment at: source/Core/Debugger.cpp:56
Can you document why this has to be 0x0004? I assume older Windows versions won't have ENABLE_VIRTUAL_TERMINAL_PROCESSING, so that should also be documented that this code is covering this case.

Comment at: source/Core/Debugger.cpp:815
+#if defined(_WIN32)
+  HANDLE hConsole = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
+  DWORD consoleMode;
A comment here would be nice. E.g. `// Enabling use of ANSI color codes because LLDB is using them to highlight text.
