    Running vb6 app as service

    As you guys can tell i am on a new project ( self employed.. not project for someone else)

    anyway, my app is in testing and moving along quite well, I am realizing that it would be best that it runs as a service. Does anyone have any pointers on the best way to do this.

    I did search and find a few solutions, but I just want to gain from the wisdom here what the best approach may be.

    Thank you all again!

    Services are for engines, apps without UI, idd., IIRC it is not possible to create forms visibles from a services, because the identity in which it runs, and a service is not related to the Windows account the user login!

    Also services are launches with identities for which was installed.

    Not suitable por apps with UI.
