    Hummm... I'm not sure about XP because I don't use it. In Win98SE and previous versions, making a task execute in the background (while minimized) is a matter of setting Properties (either the EXE or the Win PIF file associated with it). Check the XP docs on setting Properties.

    In Win9x, it's under Misc - Background. Uncheck "Always Suspend". Perhaps it's similar in XP...

    tried that already.. ;) doesn't do anything.. : i've checked it.. but it still opens up normally.. same thing with window options.. i've set it to start up minimized, doesn't obey that either.. : anyways.. i figured the only way to get it to work is to run it as a service.. but that is a PAIN in the *beep* in winxp.. : so i dunno.. i'll just keep workin on it i guess.. : thanks tho..

    One last thought:

    Find the pif file for this program. See if the changes are indeed being made. Launch it from the pif file if you aren't.

    Good luck!
