I am rewriting a Windows Service that must work on a timer.  The original Service seems to have the use of an Elapsed method for the timer using nothing more than Timer.Enabled = True.  Using VS 2010, I only have the use of the Tick method that does not work.  

My code is very simple at this point because I'm just trying to get the timer working.  I have attached the code.  Does anyone know how to gain use of the Elapsed method?

I had various issues before with the standard timer classes in services. The specific timer that works best for services is the System.Threading.Timer. I recommend using that timer in your service.
