Application with ActiveX control and Windows Messaging as a service.

I have an MFC application that uses an ActiveX Control to communicate to external hardware.  The control uses windows messages and events to send and receive data from the hardware.

I have written services before, but I can't seem to get any windows messaging to happen in a service.  So that is my question, how do I get the application to use windows messages while running as a service.

Thanks

Turn on the setting:
     Allow Service to interact with the desktop
It is under the "Log On" tab of the Properties for the Service, as seen in the ControlPanel "Services" applet.
