    Default run exe as web service

    Currently I have an application which polls some external devices and stores the information retrieved in a database. This works in conjunction with a website that retrieves the data from the database. Right now, the Visual Basic application is simply an .exe file which needs to be manually there any way to change that so that the VB app will automatically run when the web server runs. This is all on Microsoft 2000 Server, IIS 5, SQL 2000, and the application was built with VB 6.<BR>Any ideas, suggestions, etc. will be greatly appreciated.<BR><BR>Peter

    use the NT Resource Kit App &#039;Srvany&#039; I *think*, to run the app as a service, then set the service to start automatically but with the option set to be dependant on the IIS service in Windows &#039;Services&#039;.
