Always keep an application open
Authored by: lemac on Jun 21, '11 03:44:05PM

Thanks for the suggestion. This is quite technical. I am in no way a developer and got lost in the instruction. I was hoping for a simple solution like the one presented in this hint. I don't mind having the icon showing the application open in the dock but would like to hide the window.

Google the system preferences app Do Something When - I think you can set that up to automatically run a script to hide the app when it's launched.

I installed this Preference Pane. You can set it to open a document or an app when an app is launched (no option to run a script as such). I am not familiar with applescripts but managed to create an app with Automator that hides the window after launching TeamViewer. It does what I wanted to do. I am an happy camper now! Thanks tedw and everybody else for the kind and appreciated inputs.
