I'm trying to run an application (source safe) from within a service application.

Tried with CreateProcess and WinExec but it doesn't work.
The program is not started.

Any ideas ?

Does the service have the "Interact With Desktop" flag set? It may also be necessary to start the service as a specific user instead of the Local Machine account.

will check "Interact With Desktop" flag
but I cannot start the service on a specific user
it doesn't seem to work. I've created a new user in the admin group and used that info in delphi.
It says it cannot find the user...
