VB 6.0 application as NT/2000 Service (without forms or OCX)
Posted on 2004-08-19
I am using the component SVCIT from ServiceMill for creating VB 6.0 Application to run as NT/2000 service. Now there are two things i need to know, is SVCIT better than NTSVC.OCX. Which one of them is more reliable since i am developing an application for a 24/7 environment and thus my app has to be very stable and reliable.
Now the second issue is my app reads all parameters from the windows registry whenever the service starts/restarts thus i do not need a form for the service application.
So can anyone help me regarding how to create a stable VB 6.0 application that would run as a service and does not need a form or any OCX control.
I small question along with that. When the Stop/Pause event fires in SVCIT or in NTSVC.OCX does the app stops automatically or i can wait for the current job to complete then stop/pause the app?
