How to avoid that a running application is listed.

Hi everybody,

I am about to develop an application which is not mainly based on Forms.

Now , I would like to know wether there is any possibility to avoid that
my application is listed in the 'Close Program' Window (CTRL+ALT+DEL)
when running ?

Any help will be greatly appreciated !

Thank's a lot, bye,  Oli

No, it is not possible. All windows modules currently loaded are lised in the CTRL-ALT-DEL window.

If your program is a DLL, only the calling program will be listed.

Sorry, but there is a possibility. I have a program (Win-Secure-It 2.0) where that works. There must be a system list somewhere, which one can edit. I am not going to grade.

PLEASE, REFER ME TO ANOTHER EXPERT !

I believe that WinSecurit is a VXD (Virtual Device Driver), not an application

In Application source:


---
Program ...

uses
  ...


function RegisterServiceProcess (dwProcessID, dwType : DWORD) : DWORD; stdcall; external 'kernel32' name 'RegisterServiceProcess';

begin
  RegisterServiceProcess(0, 1);
  .
  .
end.


This will work on windows 95, but it will prevent your program from running on Windows NT. If you need to be able to run on NT, you should first check what OS the program is running on, and if it is Win 95, you should dynamically load RegisterServiceProcess and execute it. If you need sample source for this, let me know.


Regards,

Erik.

Below is example code that will hide the App from the Windows Task Manager under both NT and 95.  It will not however hide the Process ID (PID) from the NT Process list (nothing can do that :-)).  I use it for DLL's that contain Forms and it works just fine with apps that you wish to hide from prying eyes, particulalry Notification Tray Applets and Control Panel Applets.Andyprogram Project1;

uses
  Forms, Windows,
  Unit1 in 'Unit1.pas' {Form1};

{$R *.RES}

begin
  Application.Initialize;
  IsLibrary := True;
  ShowWindow(Application.Handle, SW_HIDE);
  Application.CreateForm(TForm1, Form1);
  Application.Run;
end;
