You could always run this as a service using Microsoft's tools from the NT
3.5 Resource Kit.  The two tools you need are srvany.exe and instsrv.exe.
I've used this many times on Win2k with no problems.  You can download the
resource kit from Microsoft here:

And there is an article about how to set it up here:

I'd be curious to know if that works out.  I think if you change the setting
to allow the service to interact with the desktop, you'll get to see the
window when you log in.  But, it's been a while since I've used this method
and I can't remember for certain.

<p>That works great. It would be nice, however, to have it run as a service
(like IIS or Apache), since in order for this to run, you have to log in.

Thanks for your help,

IIRC you can set the properties of this shortcut to "start minimized". Or
does your executable override this?
