Run as Service

P: n/a
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.python.windows usergroup.
