creating windows services with visual studio standard edition

P: n/a
we just ordered VS 2005 standard edition. i was reading up on creating
windows services and apparently this is only possible with the enterprise
edition. is this true, or does it simply mean there's no template for
windows services with the standard edition? are there VS templates published
by 3rd parties i can download to ease implementation?

Dica,

This means that there isn't a template in the project for a windows
service, you could still develop a service using the standard edition, you
would just have to do it by hand.

As far as third party templates, I don't know if there are any, and if
there are, I doubt they are allowed (as there is a reason that MS kept these
out of the standard edition in the first place).

The template is in the Professional edition. So you don't need the
Enterprise edition

SharpDevelop has a template for windows services. It's free.
