Writing a Windows Service
Posted on 2004-04-14
I was asked to write a Service for windows XP. The reason it needs to be a service is because it needs to be running weather or not there is someone loged on the computer (it is never off). I need it to "watch" an audio input, and when there is audio there, record into a dated file, save it, and reset itself when the audio stops. I am pretty profecient at VB (havn't done it in a year, but am confident about my abilities). I need to know what special conciderations I need regarding how to set this up, and how to incorporate it into the windows system. This is for our dispatch records for my Vol. Fire company, so it needs to be reliable. Any tips or sugestion would be greatly apreciated. Thanks in advance, Anthony...
