You could put all your app-like code in a DLL and export one function called something like "RunMyApp".  Then, you'd have an empty EXE whose WinMain() did nothing but call RunMyApp().

In fact, the system already provides a .EXE that practically does exactly this.  It's called RunDll32.exe (there's a 16-bit version called RunDll.exe).  Many of the system's build-in "applets" are executed via RunDll.

You can look up information on how to use RunDll on
