Hi there,
    I have a python application (many python scripts) and I start the
application like this

python myServer.py start

in window. It is running in dos window. Now I would like to put it in
background as NT service. I got a example code: SmallestService.py from
chapter 18 of the book "Python Programming On Win32" by Mark Hammond
etc. The code is as follows and runs well as an NT service.

Since I don't have the book, anybody knows how to "insert" my "python
myServer.py start" into the sample code as follows.

Thanks a lot for your help.
