How can I create Windows Services in Vb.net?  Instead of a windows form pops up all the time, I want it to start at a certain time during the day.

yes you can, set timer control and check with current time
like...


public partial class TestServise : ServiceBase

{

	private System.Threading.Timer TimerTest = null;
 

	public TestServise()

	{

		InitializeComponent();

		this.TimerTest = new System.Threading.Timer(Timer_Elapsed , null , System.Threading.Timeout.Infinite , System.Threading.Timeout.Infinite);

	}
 

	protected override void OnStart(string[] args)

	{

		try

		{

			// set timer intervale

			this.TimerTest.Change(5000 , 5000);

		}

		catch (Exception Ex)

		{

			this.Stop();

		}

		finally

		{
 

		}

	}
 

	private void Timer_Elapsed(object sender)

	{

		try

		{

			// check your time

			if (DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay = new TimeSpan(12 , 0 , 0))

			{

				// do your action

			}

		}

		catch (Exception Ex)

		{

		}

	}
 
 

}
