Re: I want to write a Daemon Thread

A daemon thread and a daemon process are not the same thing. A daemon thread is one that does not have to terminate for the controlling process to finish. A daemon process, known as a service in WinNT, is one that's usually (not always!!) run at operating system startup.
It sounds like you are actually after a daemon process and how you start them is operating system dependant.
