The System.ServiceProcess namespaces contain types that enable you to implement, install, and control Windows service applications and extend design-time support for Windows service applications.
|System.ServiceProcess||The System.ServiceProcess namespace provides classes that allow you to implement, install, and control Windows service applications. Services are long-running executables that run without a user interface. Implementing a service involves inheriting from the ServiceBase class and defining specific behavior to process when start, stop, pause, and continue commands are passed in, as well as custom behavior and actions to take when the system shuts down.|
|System.ServiceProcess.Design||The System.ServiceProcess.Design namespace contains classes that can be used to extend design-time support for Windows services applications.|
