How to set a program to run as a Windows service?
Posted on 2003-03-27
Hi VB Experts,
I did a little applcation that I want to set as a service with the installation.
I have absolutly no idea on how to do it and can't find any good reference on the topic on the web.
I'm using VB6 and I did a little install with the VS package wizard. To set the program to run at boot time I edited the registry with a .reg file as follow:
"supportServer"="C:\\Program Files\\Program Files\\AIGSupportServer\\supportServer.exe"
Is there a more elegant way to set it with the instalation of the application? Wath's the most common solution experts use to set a VB application to run as a service?
Any comments or references will be very appreciate.
Thanks in advance.
