 NT Service: An OLE Control for Creating Windows NT Services in Visual Basic (MSDN article)

Hi,

Does anyone have or can point me to a copy of this article and the
accompanying component apparently published in the January 1997 issue of
MSDN? After reading a depressing article in the MS KB it would seem this is
the last hope I have of turning my VB app to a NT Service.

Cheers,

Seyed.

Not sure which article you are referring to, but check out L.J. Johnson's
web site for info on turning a VB app into an NT service (he probably wrote
the article anyway) <g>

You can download the ntsvc.ocx at vb.duke.net. There's also an article
regarding VB service issues there. I found it a big help for me as well as the
L.J. Johnson's site.

HTH,
Dani

There are several disadvantages to the NTService OCX. You'll find things
such as dependencies ( i.e. SQL Server ) may not get loaded in time for your
service to connect, and tray icons are a bit of a pain as well, since you
get no notification on when a user has logged on ( replace the tray icon ).

If its of interest, I have an OCX I wrote that will run on 95/98 that does
all the above.
