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

Could you care to elaborate? I see nothing in the node you point to that says "broken", only "bizarre." I've been using FindBin successfully for awhile now; can you give an example where it would break, especially in a script like this?

    I tried to use Win32::Daemon. I am using XP professional. Although I could install my perl script as a service, when I restarted my XP, the service never started. I checked the log in event viewer and it says "Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Directory Monitoring Service service to connect." I tried running the example dirmon script from Dave Roth's site and it behaved in same way. My questions are 1) has dirmon script from dave roth's site worked for anybody on XP Pro. 2) My XP does not have XP service pack 1 on it. Do I need the service pack installed for this to work? 3) Or have I completely missed something. Thanks Jeevan Savant

[GotToBTru]: I
[GotToBTru]: ve been looking at a document we have been sending to a customer for years now
[MidLifeXis]: We don't, at least in this case ;-)
[GotToBTru]: and it includes a reference number that I didnt recognize
[GotToBTru]: I had to dig into the code to find out where it came from .. and it makes no sense
[GotToBTru]: so I emailed my contact asking if we could just stop sending it .. I'm afraid she is going to ask "what is that anyway?"
[MidLifeXis]: heh.
[MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b
