Interactive Windows Service
Posted on 2003-11-20
Here is the deal, I need an interactive Windows Webservice. I had the application running as just an app but I would like to run it as a Windows Service with the same functionality but just starting with the Local System. I found the setting for "Allow service to interact with desktop." and I have that checked.
Here is what is happening...I have a windows form that does all the work and I want it to be a "NotifyIcon" down in the task bar when a user is logged in. When the user double clicks on this icon, a form is shown and they can change certain asspects of the service and how it works.
I have it all put together and it was working fine as an application but now, I can not really interact with the form. When I double click on the NotifyIcon, nothing happens. I tried debuging it and it doesn't look like the even is ever getting raised or something so nothing ever happens.
Any ideas or example solutions would be greatly appreciated and rewarded.
