Quota manager NT4

I want to write a "Quota Manager" for NT4 Server. I think this application has to run as a service. If so, how can you make an application to run as a service?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

VisualBasic does not support this.

I guess i don't want the program to run as a service now Bin Huwairib. I'll give you the points, but do you know a other way for a quota manager to run on the server ? I don't want this to be dependend on the user witch is logged in, it must run also if no one is logged in at the server.....

Best Regards,


The only thing I can tell you now is VB is not ready for this kind of activity yet, if you know other languages like Delphi or C this might help you to implement your idea otherwise wait till Microsoft release an artical or update for VB to handle the service tasks.
