i don't want applications shutting down when

Specs: Windows Vista
I've set up a server at my home to run a financial application. I've also set it up so I can access it via Remote Desktop from outside my home while at work. But, every time I log out (as administrator) it closes down my application.

How do I log out of windows server 2003 without shutting down my applications?

It either has to run as a service [which most server based apps do but workstation apps don't]
lock the workstation and stay logged in.

BTW logging in as admin increases the risks since if your machine gets compromised you have already given them the best account in the system.

You do understand cybercriminals are looking for folks just like you?

Are you running vista or 2003?

I'm using Windows Server 2003. My goal is to be able to access the application remotely as needed. What do you suggest I do?

Put in a router that has a vpn client. Then, depending on how you are connecting at work, rdp/tightvnc to a pc on your network. Then go to the server.

But not exposing your server to direct remote sessions you have much better protection as well as monitor the workstation since it would be compromized before the server.

There are also programs like logmein, gotomypc, hamachi and others that create secure pipes to the workstation.
