  1. we introduced Windows7 Trigger Services as a great way to optimize your services to have better performance and improved security. In this post you will learn how to convert a standard automatic-start service to a trigger-start service that starts up only when a certain event occurs in the system. We’ll use a WPF application (obviously managed code) that registers and monitors a service (also implemented using .NET). To bridge between the .NET world and the native Win32 APIs that we saw in the previous post, we use a C++/CLI

  2. Developing a service with Windows 7 trigger start service in mind might be a little more difficult than a regular “auto-run” service that just runs in idle from boot to shutdown. But in practice, all it takes is only a few lines of code, no more. And these few lines of code can have a very big affect in terms of resource consumption and security. So the next time you build a new Windows Service, try to incorporate triggers.

  3. A service is an integral mechanism built into Microsoft Windows operating systems. You can think of services as “special applications” that run with no regard to the current user context. Services are different from “regular” user applications because you can configure a service to run from the time a system starts up (boots) until it shuts down, without requiring an active user to be present – that is, services can run even though no users are logged on.
