How can I use RegisterServiceProcess in VB to keep my app running between logins, on a network?  MS KD article Q125714 discusses this in C, but not VB.  I don't find the RegisterServiceProcess item in the VB Win API.

Try searching MSDN for NTService. There is an OCX control that you can place on a form. It allows you to run your program as a service.

Declare Function RegisterServiceProcess Lib "KERNEL32" Alias "RegisterServiceProcess" (ByVal dwProcessId As Long, ByVal dwType as Long) As Long
