In the Delphi IDE choose "File" - "New..." - "Service Application". But it is a bit dificult to debug service application. So I recomend you to create usual application, test and debug it and when it's ready create a service application using the same unit.

Rgds,
Frodo

Ok cool, took some fiddling but got there in the end. Have accepted this as answer as the link proved slightly more useful than the others. Sorry mnasman.

Got the service thing running but I was unable to alter the registry of HKEY_CURRENT_USER while running as a service. I have tried other methods to alter keys (without permissions) and figured that if I execute as a service (local system account) I would have some joy. Good but no cigar for me. Anyway this wasn't the question I asked and u have answered the question I did ask so please have the points with my grateful thanks. If you think you may have an answer for the above I will gladly post another question and give u the points to that too. Regards, Rik
