Administrative power to an application

I have developed a VB5 application, now I want to run the programme as a Windows-NT service so that the programme gets the administrative power irrespective of the fact that who is running the programme. The idea is that any user can access a data file which is only accessable to administrator through the programme.

There is a utility that MS supplies that will allow this.
Alternatively search the MS site for :
"An OLE Control for Creating Windows NT Services in Visual Basic"
and also the following article.

The control is provided as part of MSDN.
The second article includes code that will allow you to program the service in VB.
