  • Hi Hamilton2011,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, I have some questions to confirm with you.

    Does the foreground main application and the background in the one project? Or both of them are different two applications?

    What is the type of the project? Console app or Winform app?

    Best Regards,
