How to prevent showing app in window taskbar?

Hello all,

Is there a way to prevent my app from showing in the taskbar? Basically I have a headless app, that only uses a window occassionally to appear in the system tray. But whenever it is shown, it also appears in the task bar. Is there way to stop that?


It is related to the window type and/or the visibility of the owning window…

Set the type of the window to “Floating Window”

If you’re doing MS Windows you can just add an entry to the HKEY-CURRENT-USER Run- or RunOnce section of the registry. Most installers can do that quite easy.
The program will launch automatically when a user logs in, without having an entry in the Start-menu.
