I found this from Andreas about Win95. I don't know if it applies to NT as well:

Tells Squeak to run without a main window. However, for allowing
at least some access to Squeak, an icon is added to the system tray.
If you double-click this icon, the Squeak window will show up again.
* -log: logName
Use the named file as log file for VM messages.
* -service: serviceName
Install Squeak as Windows NT service. You will be asked for a couple
of things such as if to start the service on system startup or if
to run the service right now. You can modify these settings in
the service control panel.
NOTE: You MUST give the entire command line as if you want to run
the image immediately. The installation process will add a
few registry settings to determine the command line during
system start up.
Example: Squeak -memory: 4 -log: C:\VM.log -service: "Squeak Sample Service" C:\Swiki\Server.image
The "-service:" switch is fully supported on Win95 but has a little
non-standard behavior. Squeak will show up in the system tray (just as
when running -headless) because there is no such thing as a service
control panel within Win95. If you want to remove a service from a Win95
system you'll have to remove the entry in the registry at
