Window won't display from service when run on Windows 7
I am debugging a Windows service that I need to run on Windows 7. The service was developed to display a window when it is running. (Yes, I know that isn't standard operating procedure.) The window displays without any problem when the service is run on older operating systems like XP or Server 2003, but on Windows 7 or Server 2008 it doesn't show up. There's an option whereby I can run the service as an application from the command line, and when I do that, the window displays. But as a service, nada. I've tried adding a call to ShowWindow() in the service, but that didn't fix it. Any ideas what's wrong here? Thank you.
