    Can I make a program to run in the background?

    I have Chat-type applications. The Host-Chat application passes incoming messages to a separate application that only Displays the incoming Chat Messages. It's not a Sub App, but it's launched from within the Host-Chat app using Execute External Application. Everything's working fine. When a Chat Client sends a message, the Host-Chat app passes it onto the Display app... very nice.

    But... I'd like to have the Host-Chat app pass the messages through to the Display app, even when the Host-Chat app is MINIMIZED...

    and herein lies my dilema.

    thanks.

    I dont exactly know what you mean, but I know there is a new option to not have the application paused when minimized in MMF2. That might be what you want.

    Also, there is an option to run the application hidden/invisible.

    Then there is the Tray extension(s). Basically just hide the window, but still have the Tray icon about. So when people click the tray icon, you can make the window show again.
