It depends on the concrete code and situation..

I develop service code as a class library. Thus allows to use unit test and to create a console application to test the code.

Also use a loging framework like EntLib Logging or  log4net. And https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/815788traces are also an option.

Hello,

you can follow the instructions given here:
Debugging Tips for Windows Services

in short, you will create a method to test the startup and the stop method of your service, and changing the output type to Console Application.
