running an .exe API without installing a service
I'm trying to use an API that needs to run as a service on the server. However, since that is not allowed by my hosting provider, is there a way around it? The service is basically an .exe file, if I add a reference to it in VS.NET, I can access its methods. But when I try to run my application, I get the following message "The specified service does not exist as an installed service"
Thank you for any helpful hints.
