Previously called an NT service, the core function of a Windows aervice is to run an application in the background. There are few things that make them different from a Windows application. A Windows service starts much before any user logs in to the system (if it has been setup to start at boot up process). A Windows service can also be setup in such a way that it requires a user to start it manually – the ultimate customization! Windows services have their own processes, and hence run very eff...

Web Setup projects in Microsoft® Visual Studio® .NET expose the most common settings for Web Folders in Internet Information Services as folder properties; however, not all settings or properties that may need to be modified when installing a Web application are exposed.

I'm sitting in a hotel room in San Francisco working on a project that can't wait until I get back to my office, and all I can think about is my reliance on connectivity. I, and a bunch of other happy developers, am here because of the VSLive/VBits conference. Trouble is, I didn't bring everything I need for my work, so now I desperately need a network connection.

In other words, the paradigms and syntax with which developers of Windows applications became familiar are all changing, and the changes are for the most part not backwards compatible.
