How to Install a windows application ????

Hi experts,

            i have a windows application. I want to intall the .exe like we do in windows service.
Because, this application will listen for the messages from the remote machine and shud display the message. So i want the application to run like batch job.

            i cannot do that in the windows scheduler, because it invokes only once. But my requirement is it shud run like a windows service.

             Hope my explanation is clear and enogh..

So do you want to create a windows service or just an executable that gets started at runtime and runs in the background?

the best way to achieve the functionality will be to create a normal windows application and then minimize the application to the system tray so that then messages can be displayed to the user
