I have heard that win application can be developed which can perform all business and data logic on web server using web services. It is similar to web application, but the only difference here is that  user interface will be winforms instead of browser. Then User will have to download and install winapp in each machine in order to use it.
I want to know how we can put winapp on server & what are the steps to be followed for it? Please explain the whole process in detail.

That's not exactly the way it goes...

Web Services (or any other type of service) is typically designed to work behind the scenes, with no human interaction at all.   Since services like this typically communicate over a machine-to-machine communication channel, there is no need for a WinForm "front end" (since there is no human to see the form!)

In a corporate LAN, it's easy to put a WinForm application on a network share (like \\SomeServer\SomeShare\SomeApp.exe).   That way all of the client PCs can use the application without having to install it on each PC.  There are a few rules to follow... such as making sure all of the client PCs have the .Net Framework installed, and to adjust the .Net Framework's Code Access Security policy to allow applications to run from the LAN.

However, that's really not a practical solution if you're operating over the internet.  For example, I visited a web page that offered me an EXE to download and execute on my PC, I'd be very cautious about doing that.
