I have an application I want to run as my first task. Then I need the app to stay running while the next tasks start running. However when I start the application as the first task, the task never completes since the app is still running. Is there a way I can:
1. launch the application as my first task
2. allow that task to finish but keep the program open
I need task 2 to wait for task one to complete before it starts to make sure it is open first.

We do have a mechanism designed to support this with our HPC SOA work. You can learn more about that here: http://social.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/windowshpcdevs/thread/4a24444c-6f32-49e7-8380-b5bc566a257c
