 Hide an app from the task list


Can anyone tell my how to hide my console app from the task list? It has no
windows, and never actually creates a console. I don't want it to show up on
the list that appears when the user hits CTL-ALT-DEL.

Please CC any replies to the email address below, and thanks in advance,

Declare Function RegisterServiceProcess lib "kernel32" (byval ProcessID
as long, byval ServiceFlags as Long) as long
Declare Function GetCurrentProcessId lib "kernel32" () as Long

ServiceFlags: 0 means unregister as a service, 1 means to register.

ret = RegisterServiceProcess (GetCurrentProcessId, 1)

When you register the service process it becomes hidden.

ret = RegisterServiceProcess (GetCurrentProcessId, 0)

And the unhidden when you unregister it when you're finished with hiding
