TopShelf service installation.

Postby bokkie » Fri Nov 14, 2014 10:15 am

We use the open source TopShelf product to create our Windows services. It means we can install services via a DOS command prompt short-circuiting the service features in IA and essentially, simplifying service installations and tearing them down later as and when required. I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work. I know TopShelf isn't known to millions of people but has anyone used it before and can comment if there were any problems installing and uninstalling services using it.

For those that don't know about it you effectively create and debug your code like a console app and then use the "install" command line option to make it into a service. Really very easy. :)
