Service Application Help
Posted on 2004-04-14
For the last few days I have been trying to port parts of a current application of mine to a service. There are a couple problems:
1) I dont know anything about services (I know what they should do, but dont know how to write em). Added to this, hours of googling turned up nothing relavant.
2)I have got the thing running, and all appearances seem well and good, but no code will execute on startup, and the service terminates itself after about 10 seconds.
Ive chucked the ol ServiceThread.ProcessRequests(False); in the ServiceStart section, but I cant find any good tuts that even explain why this should be done.
Added to this, I am using DBISAM, Windows XP, and Delphi 7. Anything DBISAM related would be really good.
Look forward to the much needed help...
