Default File System Watcher - Part 2

Hello Everyone and thanks for your help in advance. Imar solved my previous problem on the related post, but I have run into a related, but separate problem. Obviously, the program I developed was to monitor the status of certain files and folder using the FilesystemWatcher. I pushed the exe file to my production server. It works fine when I am logged on. However, when I log off, the program stops. Obviously, Ineed the program to monitor all of the time. How do I get the program to continue while logged off? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Hugh,

Me again ;)
I think you'll need to implement this application as a service. A service will / can run under a specific user account, without someone being logged on to the box.

Visual Studio .NET provides the Windows Service project. Haven't used it much, but what I recall from an initial demo and walk through, it's a lot easier to use and deploy than it was with VB 6,

If you have VS.NET installed, check here for the Overview of services in .NET.
