If you are talking about Windows 95, call RegisterServiceProcess. For the information of this function, see

please tell more information.
And If in the NT, can we do it?

I tried using RegisterServiceProcess, but it tells me that it's not defined, and when I go to find the header which it's in, there is none.  I copy and pasted it right out of VC++ 5 help files.  What's up with this??

The answer I found in VC++ 5 is this: RegisterServiceProcess(DWORD processID, DWORD registerflag)

if you put in NULL for processID, then it defaults to your program, and the 2 register flags are:
RSP_SIMPLE_SERVICE - to turn it on
RSP_UNREGISTER_SERVICE - to turn it off.  This was about all I could find on that web page also.

To call RegisterServiceProcess, retrieve a function pointer using GetProcAddress on KERNEL32.DLL. Use the function pointer to call RegisterServiceProcess. There is example code at http://www.codeguru.com/misc/nt_service.shtml.

>And If in the NT, can we do it?
No.

By the way, you didn't need to reject my answer if you just wanted more information.

Don't worry about it, I don't mind.  =o)  He is right, the article is what I answered.  My question is this, why won't it compile for me?  What header file do I include?  I have the code written up, but it tells me that the function call is undefined, and I KNOW I spelled everything right...If someone could help me out on this one<<ahem, Chensu>>, I would appreciate it.  =o)  Thanks!

So far there is no such a header file. You need to dynamically link to it. See my comment (August 06 1998 - 07:52PM PDT).
