Application #78. Create a Windows Service
This sample application demonstrates how to create a Microsoft Windows service (formerly Windows NT Service) using Microsoft Visual Basic .NET. There are three projects in the solution. The first project, VB.NET How-To Creating a Windows Service, provides a user interface for accessing the Windows service. The second project, VB.NET How-To Windows Service Demo, is the actual Windows service. The Windows service itself is fairly simple. Whenever the service starts, pauses, resumes, or ends, a message is written to the event log. Finally, the third project, VB.NET How-To Windows Service - Time Track Install, is used to demonstrate the creation of an installation package for a Windows service.
