I have a wpf app that I want to run on a server even when it is logged off (Windows 7). To get round this I ran my .wpf exe file via a scheduled task and ticked the tickbox "run even when logged off" and this works fine. The problem I have now though when I log back on the server even thought the app is running I can't actually see it which means I cannot use my apps GUI interface to change the apps settings. Is there any way that I can have my exe run when user is logged off but also be visible when a user logs back on?

No there isn't what you should do is separate your app into an interactive GUI element and a service element.. the service keeps running and you can use the gui to then interact with it when wanted.
