With older windows that's possible by using interactive service mode.
However with Vista and later, Microsoft uses Session 0 concept, so without
some serious tricks that's not possible (and not recommended).

The true solution would be to use a 'service' and separate try application
which would communicate with the 'service' using some IPC mechanism.
