I plan to create a .NET windows service to perform data conversion on a server.  I would like to be able to get status information from this service, such as details on the file being converted, from any other PC on the network.  I can use .NET 2.x or 3.x.

What is the best way to get this information from a windows service?

Thank you for your help.

You can have it call a webservice with the status msg, you can write the info to the windows log, you can popup a notify icon, etc.

Also, if you later need to pass this info to another (web)application, it will be very easy to plug into the webservice.
