    Not as it is. You need specialized program which will run as service and host the console application. Look e.g. at FireDaemon.
    • Make it run.
    • Make it right.
    • Make it fast.

    Don't hesitate to rate my post.

    Are you asking how to create a Windows Service in Visual Studio? If so, what Visual Studio version are you using?

    That is a very very basic sample. I would suggest going back to that link and reading up on it. It's very easy to use. Just copy paste it in your project and mess around with it.

    IMO its a pretty useful too though. you don't always have the ability to alter a command line app (say, like some 3rd party utility) to be a windows service, and in instances like that, or where its not cost effective I think a service wrapper app like this is a great idea. similar btw to daemontools in linux which is like a windows services in windows but lets you run command line apps (which windows does not).

    I had the same problem and did exactly what you suggested, created a wrapper. That way I didn't have to modify my existing console applications. I posted it here: http://runasservice.com/
