shellexecute() window not showing in NT

i am running
ShellExecute( 0, "open", strProgramName , strParams, strDirectory, SW_SHOWNORMAL )

from a dll (custom coldfusion tag) on a remote Windows NT server.

it executes the program, but does not display it on the desktop or taskbar (of the server), so the only way i can kill it is through the task manager.

I know there are a number of virtual desktops that run in winnt, so maybe my problem has something to do with that?

i just want the program to show up on the server desktop.

is ShellExecute called from a service?
If so, you need to set the service running as Local System and set the "interact with desktop flag"
