Deploying Windows Service on XP with C#

I have been charged with bottstrapping myself on C# and Windows services at the same time. I have created a Windows Service not a WebService and I am trying to deploy it. I followed the instructions given in the help with creating a project & process installer in the project and then creating a setup project. I am able to link them and build the setup. However, I am unsure how to get the setup project to create the service in the registry and then get the services dialog to recognize it. Right now nothing is put in the registry from the setup, however it copies the files over and all those basic setup functions

What do I need to do special for a service installation?

Hi there: I'm a veteran to ASP.NET 1.1, but new to 2.0, and I'm using VS 2005.

I've looked around and found several references to the app_offline file, for which I've searched exhaustively and found nothing. I'm essentially running...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
