do you want to run?
Is this without the customer's permission?
What do you mean by "hiding" XP, but running XP in the background? You either run a program withing the Windows configuration, or you run a program in DOS, and as Windows XP got rid of DOS you could only do that with a DOS emulator, or installing DOS or another operating system such as Linux on a separate partition and running it as a separate operating system. In which case XP would not be running in the background.
need help!!!!! I want to run an application in a customer's computer but dont' want show anything about xp, how can i hide the xp backgroud, so that when i turn on the computer, the computer can check ram, harddriver whatever and running xp at background, then run my application automatically. and the only thing i can see is my porgram.
