How to make a C Sharp 2010 application run as a service?

Posted on 2011-09-26
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hello everyone,
          I am kind of new in Microsoft technology and I need to put a C Sharp application to run as a service. This application has 9 different projects on it that run at the same time. All of them get call by the main thread or project.

After we finish testing, we need to put this application to run as a service and I need to know how to do this.
the OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
      64 bit Operating System

We have three servers, Principal, Mirror, and witness. I need to do this in both, Principal and Mirror.

Any link of a manual or tutorial will be useful.
Thank you

I need to defined SQL Server Service as required to start first. How can I do this?

Ones I create the Service, how can I assign My C Sharp application to it?

Thank you.

This can also be done via command prompt using the sc command. The syntax is:

sc config [service name] depend= <Dependencies(separated by / (forward slash))>

Note: There is a space after the equals sign, and there is not one before it. So if you want ServiceA to depend on both ServiceB and ServiceC--that is to say, ServiceA will not start until the other two have started--then you would use this:

sc config ServiceA depend= ServiceB/ServiceC

Edit: Also, if you want to remove all dependencies, you have to use the following syntax:

sc config ServiceA depend= /
