C, Windows 9x/2K/XP
This is a skeleton Windows application that does absolutely nothing, which is more useful than it sounds. Occasionally, applications demand an application to run—Canon’s scanning toolbox is an example—even when you don’t want to run anything. Solution: use a lightweight program that does nothing at all.
I compiled it with the Microsoft C compiler cl and then used UPX to compress the executable down even further.
