TService, TServiceApplication

Hello.

I've written a Simple Win95/98 service
that reads the inbound trafic on a serial device, now i need to write a service for NT and i thought i could use the TService "Wizard" but i can't figure out how the hell it works, it does nothing, i NEVER get to the OnStart
event.

Some SampleCode that uses the TService would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Barry. I'll try some of those examples and see if any of them will do it for me, a bit sad that no Examples where for the TService included in Delphi though, but you can't get everything you want right?

all i know is that wizard creates one TService object that you can manipulate .Chapter 3 of the Delphi Developers Guide gives two sample Services ,one using threads and one without.  
these are also a couple examples in the help file:
Type in TService in the Delphi help topics index. Go to that page and click on see also. This will take you to an example of a service. If you then go to the next page [>>] you will see another simple service example.
but from what i hear they dont work to well in nt .
