I have netcat running on my comp downstaris and when I try to execute WinXP apps (say notepad.exe) they get launched as background processes and not as foreground apps(on the remote computer). So when I launch notepad.exe, I can see it in the Task Manager processes tab but not as an app. In short, I can't use it because it is running in the background. Is there a way to run them normally? i've noticed that they will run normal if i add a /max or /min argument to them, but is there a way to execute it and have it just start normally? also, how do you start processes in the background like that regularly?
