Title: running application as service in Desktop Interaction Mode
Post by: supreet on June 18, 2013, 09:34:12 AM
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.

Thanks
Supreet

In order to start service interactively you should change InteractWithDesktopChanged property of your service. More information about this property you can find here: http://wiki.eltima.com/user-guides/run-service-ax/interact-with-desktop-changed.html

Also make sure that Interactive Services Detection service is running.

Please, check whether "Interactive Services Detection" is enabled on your Windows 7 machine. Due to the fact that interactive services are running in a separate "sessions" on Windows 7, you will not be able to see the icon of your application in the tray.
