How to create non-visual application in Visual Studio 2003?

P: n/a
Hi, how can I create non-visual application in Visual Studio 2003?
Theoretically I could just make windows form invisible but it's not much
elegant. I've also tried to use console application but then, there's
console window displayed even if program doesn't send anything there. The
third way - to create windows service isn't ideal too because I wan't just
an invisible application, not a service.
What can I do with that?
Thanks.

Yes but it certainly helps during the development!

Hi Tomas,

you can make windows-application without using forms.
Yes that works!!
Simply make a Console-Aplication and then set it's Output Type to
Windows-App.
Or make a windows app, throw the Form1 away and then program like it was a
console App.

Actually the main difference between Console and WinnApp is not, that a
WinApp has Windows and a Console App not (you can even open a window from a
Console App), but that a Console App has always a Console and a Win App has
not.
