Console application -> Windows Service vb.net

Last Modified: 2012-05-10

I have a console application that needs to rebuilt as a windows service but I keep getting errors. Can someone help me by showing me the shell of a windows service? Code that allows me to simply add in the code doing the work it needs to do every x seconds?

I have been googling and trying multiple tutorials but nothing clear and succesful has been found, could someone with some experience with this help me out by providing a working shell?
