I have a vb program running on a server for 24 hrs a day, and 7 days a week. When I log off from the server, the program would stop.  I'd like to make it into a file that running on the background so when I log on/off the server, the program continues to run. I tried a software which can transfer a vb program into a service program, but it didn't work. Thanks for any input.

Could you give me more details?  I'm not familiar with client-server.
