in reply to Install a perl script as a Win NT/2000/XP service.

Very interesting.

I prefer to compile my scripts with perl2exe and install the binary as a service. I've used instsrv and srvany, but I prefer to use the freely available FireDaemon. Get the v0.09 version -- the new version only supports 1 service without a registration code.

You might also consider Win32::Daemon for a pure-perl solution.

Update: Srvany.exe and instsrv.exe are part of the Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit, available here.
