Windows Service

Hi! Can anyone give a snippet of code on how to start in
Windows Service, an executable file much like the start
command in a batch file. ie. start myapp.exe arg.somefile

Thanks,
ALim

Joe,
Thanks for your suggestion, but I'm sorry my request was
not so clear. I just wanted to figure out how I could run
an executable file inside the OnStart method in the
ServiceBase class. Most examples in how to create a
Windows Service just prints into a log file or a console,
my question, I guess, is how does .NET runs an executable
file. Let me know if I'm still not making sense here.
Thanks again,
Alim

I have a NotifyIcon in my Windows Service project and I am trying to add a ContextMenu to this NotifyIcon or use some of the mouse events. Everything isn't working. I think so base class of the service System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase don't catchWindows messages like mouse or timer messages. Any Idea? Thanks,

I am trying to control a Windows Service via a Web Service interface. (I am developing in .NET2003) I am using the ServiceController object which allows me to read the state of the services with no problems. However, I am not able to start or stop the service unless I go through the process of impersonating an administrative user. (See MSDN KB 306158) Since it appears to be a privilege issue, I set the folders in IIS holding the Web...

When to use a privileged user thread rather than a windows service? That's the question raised in a previous post . It was suggested that if the service needs to interact with a WinForms app (which is the UI used to adjust the actions taken by, and the schedule of the service), then a privileged user thread should be used in the UI - no service required. But... "A windows service enables the creation of long-running executable

What would be a good way to check programmatically whether a service was running? We have a service that dies periodically and I need to check to see if this service is running. I know how to check to see if the status is in stopped or running mode. But that doesn't tell me if it is actually running. I need to know this so that if it happens I can programmatically start the same service on another machine.

I'm really starting to hate writing services -- or trying to, anyway. Why do I need to rename my project to the service name? Why do I need to set the "ServiceName" property to my service name? Why do I need to set a property within my code to the service name? Are all these required or am I just doing this for consistency purposes?

Hi, I created a web service that I want to host in windows service. The problem is that if I host it as windows service it does not use the configuration file. I have to define the binding, endpoint etc. programmatically in the Program.cs file. Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Cheers,

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. 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.
