Display or shell second exe from exe running as a service
i have a exe running fine as a service. its a vb6 app and runs under windows 7. i cant shell out another exe because from the service exe i get this window that says something like a program is trying to display an message. slick here to read. the exe i want to shell is just a regular form window. what is the best way to run another exe? i cant find anything on this forum
Re: Display or shell second exe from exe running as a service
Well one major issue is the fact that a service can run even when there is no user logged on but a windows form can not do this. A service also generally runs ina different account than what the user would be logged into and the windows form app would not be able to run because another account is active at the time.
and when the splash.exe trys to open in vista and windows 7 i get the message from windows saying that an application is trying to show a message would you like to view? this is my issue. so what is another way a app running as a service under these windows versions can display any kind of message to the user? XP it runs fine. i have tried interactive service mode on and off with the same results
