    how to run windows based service in wine?


    I am new to Linux and Wine. I have installed wine successfully in linux and i am able to open applications in it.

    I have a own tool which requires a service to be run in the background. This is a windows based servcie.

    In windows i used to start it as "net start <service name".

    what are the steps to do it in wine. kindly help me out.

    Best Regards,

    I tried to run Windows services in wine, but Wine doesn't support that.
    Service hosts will connect to the service management -- services.exe, so the later have to be run first. I added some keys into registry, and copied files from Windows. Unfortunately, services.exe will call some functions like RtlRegisterWait, which are still not implemented by wine. So I didn't know how to step forward.
