FileSystemWatcher as a Service

Hi

I am planning to use the filesystemwatcher to monitor an ftp site for
changes to a file. I would like to download the file if it changes and process
it locally. I read somewhere that I do not need a service to accomplish this
and only need to write my filesystemwatcher. Do I really need to make
the Filesystemwatcher program a service?

Can someone please point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

A Hirsi,

It depends on when you need this to run. If you need this to run all
the time, then I think that a service would be better. Asking that a user
be logged onto a machine just so you can provide the service (an apt
description I would say) isn't too feasable.

Hope this helps.
