Hello, 
I have written a small service in python. This sevice will essentially 
be a scheduled activity to zip and copy some directories.

This activity is created as a process to be able to retieve later on 
its handle to terminate the process. But it seems that as soon as the 
process is created it takes over and doesn't allow my service to get 
any messages from  the SCM.

This a copy of my service... Can someone tell me wheta I have been 
doing wrong? It would be of great help. Thanks a lot!!!
