How can I start rmid in the background under win32? I found that javaw sun.rmi.registry.RegistryImpl does it for rmiregistry. Is there something like this for rmid? If I use "start rmid", I get a dos console all the time.

Try hiding it. You can create a Windows Link (something like a .pif) and specify the starting position (x and y) outside the visible area of the screen (like x=-1000, y=-1000).
