Hi Gurus,
Is it possible to fire Msgbox or a Form from a Windows Service. I'll
appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.

Services are NOT supposed to have User intervention required (ie: from
MsgBox's) as they are normally running when a user is logged off. You
should therefore log errors or messages for the user somewhere else (ie:
a log file or database etc).

The user should then run a second program to check these messages (ie:
run from the Start-Up folder).

Kind Regards,
