hi
I am using srvany.exe to invoke a GUI application.
 My problem is that my application uses threads and database connections, I want to close those resources when stopping the service.

What can I do to supply an orderly termination for my application?

thanks,
   udi

I havn't been able to find any information how to do this with SrvAny.Exe, however i found another "start application as server" program that can do it...called SrvStart it can be found here: http://www.nick.rozanski.com/software.htm

udic,

This might help you:

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
  (...)
  protected
     procedure WMEndSession(var WMsg: TWMEndSession);  message WM_ENDSESSION;
  (...)
  end;


procedure TForm1.WMEndSession(var WMsg: TWMEndSession);
begin

  // ... your cleanup code here...

  inherited;
end;
