Running a service as an application (or v.v)

//If ‘ApplicationMode’ argument was passed then run as a windows application otherwise run as a Windows service.
if (args.Length > 0)
foreach (string currentArg in args)
if (String.Compare(currentArg, “-applicationmode”, true, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture) == 0)
_runningAsService = false;

_exceptionHandler = new ExceptionHandler(_runningAsService, SR.ServiceMainName);
AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += new UnhandledExceptionEventHandler(_exceptionHandler.OnUnhandledException);

if (_runningAsService)
System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase[] ServicesToRun = new System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase[] { new DispatchService() };
//Windows Application
System.Windows.Forms.Form applicationForm = new ApplicationModeForm();
