Run as Service

I have, in the past, used SRVANY to run a Python app as a Windows
service. However, now I am interested in distributing my scripts and
want to make it as painless for the end user as possible (hands-off is
best :). How can you go about running a Python app as a Windows
service without SRVANY?

I have used CherryPy sucessfully as a windows service.

You can probably glean what you need from.

Pick up a copy of Mark Hammond's book "Python on Win32". It has an excellent
chapter on using Win32 extensions to write Windows Services. Also you might
consider looking at gmane.comp.pyth on.windows usergroup.

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?
