1) I would like to have a background application that runs without any visible windows.
2) I would like this app to take a screenshot once every 5 - 60 minutes, depending on user settings, and save it to a directory. A counter in a text file will determine unique names for each bitmap.
I know I've read something about background process apps before, but I don't know how to create one. I'm also guessing sending windows a command to take a screenshot (same as hitting Print Screen button and saving the result) is pretty simple, but have no idea how to do it.
