I want to make an application in C (windows ) using Visual c++ 6.0
which runs in background. What do i need to do for it. There is no user
input in the application .

You should ask in one of the M$ groups. It is off-topic here.

Standard C knows nothing about "running in the background" so you need
to ask in a group that deals with Visual Studio.

You also need to decide on whether you want the program installed as a
service controlled by the service manager (which requires using Windows
extensions) and if not how you want the user to start/stop the
application. I for one don't like applications where the only way of
stopping them is opening the task manager and killing them.

You can't do it in Standard C, which is what we discuss here.
Standard C knows nothing of windows, Visual c++, or background.
I suggest you ask in a Windows group.

Can't you just minimize the window your application runs within?

how about simply not creating a window. there will be no evidence of
your program running, apart from the process in the task manager.
