Welcome,

But Why ?

1. didn't you use the search option? this has been asked many times.

2. any legitimate reason you want to do this ?

Hate to say this but don't bother asking, I had/have a legitimate reason to and no one even posted on my thread and it's the same with almost every other one as well.

Well if you really want to do it you should use the forums search or help file. But I think it's not possible. And if it were, what could possibly be a good use of it?

If you don't mind I do want to understand why somebody, as opening post, asks a question like this.

I have never yet seen any legitimate reason and can only suspect viral intentions, but like to give a chance to explain first.

Likewise, whenever I see a "questionable" request like this, I too often find that the person has joined within the previous day and has a total of a maximum of 5 posts, all of which concern me about the intent. I'm always happy to help where my knowledge permits, but I weigh such factors regularly.

Back to the question at hand, however, I don't know of such a method (hiding app processes), and would avoid such in my own applications.

Then all you need to do is to hide the systray icon in my mind.

I doubt if users will constandly check the running processes and even if they do, what is the problem with them knowing about it ?

Best prevention in my mind is telling them you will actively scan PC's.

I have also wondered if this is possible. And it is for a legitimate reason. The script I am currently working on is migrating users to a domain. Now most user will use the script, but I know a few people who will try and migrate themselves, in which case will not be able to and cause more headaches for me.

So I would like to be able to hide the script while it is running so there is no way they can exit out of the script. I really don;t want them to be tempted to use the Task Manager to stop the Process. Maybe I am a little bit paranoid, but it would make me feel better to know the user isn't going to play around while the script is running.

To me I feel like it would be beneficial and needed to hide the process. I realize some people would be trying to find this out for "bad" reasons, but I would never do this, as I would be fired if I ever messed around with things like that. :)

This to me is not hiding the Program from the tasklist, but hiding the windows while the pointing and clicking is going on ...

This can be done by either a winhide() and using Control*() statements OR just put a SplashTextOn() on top of the whole thing while processing ...
