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