We can create Java Application Application as an NT service using instsrv.exe and srvany.exe Steps to do so 1. instsrv SampleService srvany.exe 2. Create parameters with regedt32 under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Parameters AppDirectory: d:\Sample Application: c:\jdk1.3\bin\java.exe AppParameters: -classpath com.sample.SampleService Here SampleService is the service Name and D:\Sample is the path where SampleService.class file exists and C:\jdk1.3\bin\java.exe is the path where java is installed and com.Sample.SampleService is the class file which u want to make it as a service. com.sample is that package. That should be in the classpath. Hope this solves your problem. you can find the instsrv.exe and srvany.exe.

Thanks for that, but I have some doubts. Where do I get these 2 files. and also, these files only launch ur app, and dont convert them into service. I want all my class files packed into a single exe, which I can install as service. Is there a way out?
