I just has a quick look in the help files and it has this to
say

'In Visual Basic 6.0, the TaskVisible property of the App
object determined whether an application appeared in the
Windows task list (Windows 9x) or in the Task Manager
Applications tab (Windows 2000). The property was commonly
used to prevent a user from closing an application that was
intended to run as a background task; in most cases it was
used with applications that did not display a user
interface.

In Visual Basic .NET, there is no equivalent for the
TaskVisible property; however, you can create a Windows
Service or a Console Application that will not show up in
the task list.'
