running application as service in Desktop Interaction Mode(Read 2671 times)
Hi Friends,
  I have one of my applications that I need to run as a service in Desktop Interactive mode.
We used Run Service Active X & it did the trick of converting the app as a windows service.

However the service keeps running in system tray in task bar & does not function unless someone clicks on it  & opens it up on the desktop.

I believe the service is running in No Desktop interaction mode? Any possible reason on why the service starts functioning when its out of system tray & is on desktop, & does not work when its still running as a service sitting in system tray?

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

In order to start service interactively you should change InteractWithDesktopChanged property of your service. More information about this property you can find here:

Also make sure that Interactive Services Detection service is running.
