Hi!

There's no direct equivalent to OS/400 batch jobs, but you can get
close. I've seen some 3rd party tools for this, but I have not used them
myself. One way is to re-write your program into a service. It's not
exactly the same, but it would execute in the background and can
communicate with the System Tray for status info or events.

You write that you cannot use your PC while your program is running;
this will unfortunately also be the case if you execute in the
background. You need to do two things: Decrease the priority (can be
done in the task manager or programmatically) and make your program
polite! Impolite programs hog all resources - including CPU. Depending
on the level you're writing on you could exit the message loop once in a
while and/or you could execute a yield() command.
