Windowless MFC

I am written a number of MFC class
based programs using VC++ app wizard.

I made these programs dialog based.

Now my customer does not want any
windows available to the operators.
Busy fingers and all that.  

How do I generate an MFC application
without using any windows.....and not
loosing access to Windows events...etc.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

And none of the windows will be visible.

The ShowWindow function was the answer.

Thank you
SW_SHOWMINIMIZED still leaves the icon for the app in the taskbar.  SW_HIDE, hides it entirely.  Depends on what you want...
