Not Web Service but typical Windows Service.

I've been learning about building controls and allowing VS2005 .NET to output a dll instead of an exe file.

Q. Can I output a Service project as a dll or does it have to be exe?

but if you put most of your application logic in dlls, the EXE can use those dlls, which means the logic is still reusable ;)
