    How do I Hide my Application?

    I'm writing an application, and I don't want it to show up in our users
    Applications list in the NT Task Manager. The form is set to invisible. I
    don't mind if it shows up in the Process list, but NOT in the Applications
    list. Can anyone tell me how to do this, or just point me in the right
    direction?

    Thank you!

    Set the ShowInTaskbar property of your main form to false.

    That did not work... When I look at the Applications list in "Windows NT
    Task Manager", my app still shows up.

    Any more suggestions?

    Thanks

    Chris,

    I don't think you can do this. It's the operating system doing this as
    part of its critical system functions. Perhaps you just need to permission
    your users more vigilantly.
