windows service in with a form


Tom L

I'm trying to create a windows service in that will let me open a
form up from it's system tray icon - and I'm having all sorts of problems..

I have my service set to "interact with desktop", I can successfully display
a msgbox, but can't open a form.. when I try to New a form and show it, it
causes the service to hang while it's trying to be started.

At this point, I would prefer not to get into the "services shouldn't have
forms" stuff - but the forms are pretty involved (for monitoring of a timed
activity), and I dont' want to change how everythng is done.. the basic idea
is for the app to start as a service.
