hi jkr,
http://www.proxima.de/rpcexec.zip is pretty much as what i want, but i drawback is the rpcexecs.exe will have a window when it is being executing, is there other program which does not show any clue when server program is running (run as background process, or being hiden) ?

You can achieve this by placing a link to the server process in your 'Startup' folder and setting the show options to 'minimized' - or by using 'RPCRunner' from 'http://erny.freeservers.com/index.html'
