Creating Windows Services with VB 2008

Windows services are applications designed to run in the background on client or server systems on Microsoft Platforms.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 provides templates and wizards that allow developers to easily and effectively develop customized Windows services that can extend existing services or create enterprise solutions for the most complex situations.
