Btw. i wrote a minimal win32 service. 

It appears in the windows2k/XP service control manager and has only 
the required features like installing/registering service, 
uninstalling/unregistering, start and stop service.

As i did not want to change the code of the application that should 
run as a service on system startup i used a small trick to start it 
from a real service with the system rights.

[system boots]
[SCM - services get started]
[my minimal service starts up] -> CreateProcess() on the real 

Anyway I think the code could help you somehow:


If you want I can adapt this minimal service to start jabberd.exe.
I can do this in a minute and send you the code or add the code to jabberd cvs...
