Hello All,

I'm in need to create a windows service that accesses an URL at given intervals, while easy to do as a desktop application, I'm struggling to turn it into a windows service.

I've removed all user interaction, and need to load an XML file onStart() of the windows service and when the timer ticks exec given function that accesses the URL.

How do you read the file when there is no Application.StartupPath ? Gotta start somewhere ... :)

How the heck do you debug a windows service ?

And lastly, how do you deploy the windows service once done ?

Thanks!
