I have to create a service program with calling COM components. Is it possible to create a service as WinMain function? Or is there any solution to this problem?

I think service program has nothing to do with the entry point,you can use WinMain/main. It only depend on StartServiceCtrlDispatcher and ServiceMain. And in you main/WinMain you should call OleInitialize(NULL); in order to use COM components.
