Add startup App so RemoteDesktop can connect

Is is possible to add an application (with windows, forms and a complete User Interface) to a server's startup, such that the application ...

a) Is always running?
b) will never time-out?
c) Will automatically appear in a Remote Desktop session, when an RD session is opened?

.... actually ... I guess what I'm asking is ....
Can a daemon (WindowsService) have a full UI?
Advice would be helpful.

Yes, what you have to do is:

Set an autoadminlogon with an account that will run the app
Put the app in the startup for that user.

When you RD into the box you must do a mstsc /console and logon as the same account that runs the app

Forgot to mention, if you login with a different userid or fail to use the mstsc /console, it will logoff the account that is running the app, and the app will close.

A better way would be to program it as a service (daemon) and have a COM component that you connect to when you load the GUI.
