aluiken,

   Yes. It is possible. But you must beware of some issue when you create NT service in VB.
   Take a look at these pages:

http://vb.duke.net/howto/service.html
http://vb.duke.net/howto/service2.html
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q175/9/48.asp (This MS kb articles contains example source in VB)

And, you could also use a ocx from microsoft. They provide the vc source of the ocx NTSvc.ocx but did not provide the compiled ocx file. You may download the vc source and compiled the ocx yourself. Microsoft didn't provide support for this ocx. Info about this ntsvc.ocx:

Hope this help.
