Default WinServices - Chapter 32 Pro C# 3rd Edition

Hi all, I hope someone can shine some light on the problem I seem to be having. I have created QuoteService, QuoteClient, QuoteServer, & TestQuoteServer. I install the service just fine but when I go to start it it starts & stops immediately. I get a message box that states "The QuoteService service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service.". Can somebody please explain to me how to get around this because I've tried everything and can't seem to get it to work. The problem seems to be with QuoteServer because if I take out the calls to QuoteServer in the OnStart method and have it just write to a file then when I start the service it stays running but the minute I uncomment the calls to QuoteServer the same thing happens. I've downloaded the code off of this site to compare to what I wrote and they're identical. So now I'm really baffled as to what the problem is. Can anyone please help?

Thanks In Advance,

I have had this same problem, although not with the same code. I created a service of my own from scratch to simply monitor the local hard drive for a file, and if it is found, perform an action.

Newbie, as far as your code, I know you may THINK you have identical code to the book, but have you actually compiled the code from the CD to make sure? I have smacked myself in the forehead a few times because I thought things were "identical" but I came to realize that one critical line or even just one CHARACTER was different. Just a suggestion.

However, some help on this from ANYONE, ANYWHERE would be greatly appreciated!

To Get rid of this problem, I tried using a timer control to have the program wait for timer_elapsed event. It Worked !!!

Use the following lines of code in your InitializeComponent() method

private void InitializeComponent()
components = new System.ComponentModel.Container();
this.ServiceName = "Reciever1";
this.timer1.Interval = 60000; //60 Secs
this.timer1.Elapsed += new System.Timers.ElapsedEventHandler(this.timer1_Elap sed);
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.t imer1)).EndInit();

The last line is very important.
