Is it possible to pipe a native graphical Windows application to Xserver?

I would like to run a virtual machine on my Linux host and access the application directly. (Something like the seamless function from VirtualBox)

The closest thing you can get to that, as far as I know, is using rdesktop.

You need a server-side application to get seamless mode applications though. (Plain RDP session doesn't require anything on the Windows host.)
