NT/2000/XP Services Problem

I've built a Service Application with one NT Service attached to it.
When installing the NT Service it goes fine, the moment I try to "start" it after I installed it, I receive this messsge: "Could not start the service on Local Computer,
                       Error 1053: The service did not repsond to the start
                       or control request in a timely fashion."
every time I try to start it
This service is dependant on the MySQL service, but MySQL starts fine
except my service giving me problems.

Does anybody know of a proper stable way how to code, create, install
and start an NT Service?

I'm currently developing with Delphi 6 on Windows XP.

Hi.

Maybe you should add a thread to your service. Did you return true in your start procedure?

Something like:

procedure TService1.ServiceStart(Sender: TService; var Started: Boolean);
begin
  TestThread := TTestThread.Create(False);
  Started := True;
end;
