Write a system service

I have never written a system service, and dont see the option to do it.  I am using Visual studios 2010 Express.  I also have Visual Studios 2005 Standard Edition.  When I go to create a new project, I don't see the option for a windows service.  Am I missing something?  I need to do this in Visual Basic with .net 2.0.  Thanks, Chad

in the express edition Windows Service templates are not available you have to use VS 2005.

Yes as i say, In experss edition is not available.

You have to do it in VS 2005 standard.

and the template must be in there as the las tuto i post.

If not please let me know because perhaps you have a wrong instalation.
