    If its a window application then add the following code during the windows initialization:
    Code:
    long CurrentStyle = GetWindowLong ( m_hWnd , GWL_EXSTYLE);
    CurrentStyle |= WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW;   //add WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW flag
    CurrentStyle &= (0xFFFFFFFF^WS_EX_APPWINDOW);  // remove WS_EX_APPWINDOW flag
    SetWindowLong(m_hWnd, GWL_EXSTYLE, CurrentStyle);
