 Diagnostics.Process.Start from Windows Service Question

Go to Services, under Administrative Tools in the Control Panel.
Right click on your service & select properties.
On the Log On tab select "Allow service to interact with desktop"

Can anyone tell me how to do this from my C# Service or Service Installer
