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
