windows service development

By JimAba ·
Hello everyone,
a brief description of the problem follows:
i have been developing a program(.net visual basic) starting in the form of a windows form(so as to control better debugging process) aiming to package it al last as a windows service. The curious thing with this is that the form version of the program accepts input from a shared folder(reads files from it) but the service doesn?t, although i ve tried execute it as a network service and stuff. If anyone has ever faced such a situation i would really appreciated it to learn whats going on.

Thanks in advance

Does the service run with privileges to access the folder?

Make sure it is running at the System or Administrator level, or if at User level, currently logged on user has permissions to access that folder.

If that doesn't help, attach a debugger to the running service.
