What is need is this.
Either a step by step instructions on how to install a program as a Windows Service or to create a program where it asks for the path of the file and it installs the program as a Windows Service and having it autostart as well. Examples of Windows Services are I.I.S, SQL Server, etc. I need this because there was a program someone did that is a Windows Service and I do not know how to install it. Please specify on the bid whether this is for instructions on how to install it as a service or a program to do so. I would prefer the program but instructions would be fine as well (as long as its specified in the bid that its for the instructions). What I also want is information to show what the advantages and disadvantages of creating a program as a Windows Service. Finally, whether someone can write a program with Visual Basic 6.0 and install it as a Windows Service.
1. Either the source code and the complete program written in Visual Basic 6.0 to install an application as a service or step by step instructions to show how to install an application as a Windows Service.
2. Explaination of the advantages and disadvantages of creating a program as a Windows Service
3. Information about whether someone can create a Visual Basic 6.0 application as a Windows Service. If so, then how. If not, then just specify that.
Windows 2000, Windows XP
