hi
i build a service shell that launch, close and detect when the application was closed (by process list), This shell inherit from TService (Service application wizard).
In my project i use this for 2 application can i do this generic?
i have the following code:

TGenericServiceShell = class(TService)
.
.
and
TMyService = class(TGenericServiceShell)

MyService unit was created by using ‘Service application’ wizard,  I changed the inheritance from TService to TgenericServiceShell, and then when closing the project and load it again i get an error about name missing, the service main form replaced with another one and the service doesn't work.

Thanks,
udi

You are trying to use form inheritance (because TService comes with a data module).
In that case, make sure the following is true:

The ancestor unit is part of your project.
The descendant's .dfm begins with 'inherited' keyword instead of 'object'.

You can achieve this at design time with File\New\Other... in your project tab, select ancestor, Inherit.
