debugging a service
Posted on 2004-11-08
I've downloaded some opensource code that runs as a service. When I run it in the debugger, a messagebox pops up saying, "Not run as a service!" Now, I'm no admin (just a humble coder), so I know only the basics about services. I've looked some for info regarding installing services, but all I can find is code-based ways of installing a service. I don't want to do that right now, I just want to debug it. And, later on, when I'm done playing with it, I'd like to run it as a service.
So, two-part question. Part one: how do I debug this service in MSDev Visual C++.NET? Part two: once I finish playing, can I install it as a service any way OTHER than actually in the code?
