Hi,

One thing u can do easily.

Make the VB DLL of your service.(what all the functionality you want to put it in service, put it in VB dll) Then make VC++ NT service and from that service call u r VB DLL as if it is the external OLE component.

I am using this technique for last 2 yes and didn’t get any problem.

I hope this will help you.

PS: (In VC there are some wizards so it’s very easy to create the NT service)

see this other option: http://www.desaware.com/NTToolkitL2.htm

Another way is to move to .Net which allows you to build Windows services natively.
