    Running a Windows Service with Interactive Mode in Vista ?

    Hi Experts:

    I have an existing Windows service which is configured to run in
    "Interactive with Desktop" mode; it has been working fine on older Windows
    platform but not in Vista. Under Vista, the application runs all right but
    its UIs are not shown.

    How to make it work in Vista so that the UI shows up the same way as in XP?
    Any help link is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Polaris,

    Session 0 isolation in Vista prevents services from interacting with user
    sessions in the way it was possible in previous versions of Windows. For
    more information refer to documents below:

    Interactive with Desktop
