Run as Windows service

Services are usually faceless applications Derek ;)
In the windows resourcekit there is a programmed named
srvany.exe. Search it in technet.Microsoft.com, you'll
find what you're looking for.
First you compile the application (with a startup handler
to run it)...
Then you set the srvany and link your application to a
service that you create with srvany.
That's it... when the service is started, you app should be
running. It's useful to keep a text log of the operations to
keep track of it's running status too...
I've posted this previously in the list too. If you search
the archives, you should find it...
