 Hello listers, I'm having trouble getting a Windows Service to run 'properly'. My goal for this sample project was to create a service that would just post a message to system debug every 30 seconds. My problem is that when I manually start my service I get the following message "The sampleService service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs" To create the service I made a new project (RS Studio 2010r2) and selected 'Empty Service' for the template. I then added a new class to the Project named 'srvcTimer' and set the super to Timer. Here's all the code… App.Run() dim checkTimer as srvcTimer checkTimer = new srvcTimer checkTimer.Period = 30000 checkTimer.Mode = 2 srvcTimer.Action() System.DebugLog("Timer event fired") After building the app I added it as a service using the following command in Windows 7 sc create sampleService binPath= c:\path\to\sampleService.exe type= own This seemed to create the service properly (it shows up in the Services Controller), but when I start it I get the message I listed above. Does anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks! _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe or switch delivery mode: Search the archives:
