I want to creat a visual basic application that will check whether a particular file has been updated/changed. For eq. The application will check whether a file temp.log has been updated/changed in folder c:\Test or not. How can i make this exe to sit on the computer througou the time when the system starts up. Should i make this exe as a Service. Can i have this .exe running constantly in the system tray, so that it keeps on checking for the particular .log file.
Any help about how to begin on this will be highly appreciated.
