However, this server must be started when Windows NT is started. This
implies that it should be implemented as an NT-Service. The only problem is
that when I let it run as a service (using either SRVANY.exe or the
NTSVC.ocx) the clients can no longer connect to it. It is running (I've
checked this with the taskmanager) but when a client wants to connect to it,
a new process is started and it connects to this 'new' server, instead of to
the server that was already running.
My question is: is it possible to run a (D)COM server as an NT-Service. If
so, what am I doing wrong? If not, is there another possibility to start a
COM server _together with_ Win NT in such a way that it doesn't create a new
process when a client wants to connect to it? (Again, it already works when
I'm logged in and start the executable by hand).
Please reply to rcde...@matthijsendevoogd.nl as well as to this list.
Many greetings and thanks,
