Rick, I normally have a better grasp of things before asking a question but for this question, probably not so much. I do apologize for that.

I am running my service (developed with WWWC) on my cloud server. I start the app pool and the default web site. Then I use file explorer to run the executable in the home\deploy folder. It runs. I see it the form that shows the hits to the service with the Exit button.

My question: When this goes live (meaning I am ready to fully implement everything), I do not understand:

  1. I don't understand why I have to go to File Explorer and run the executable. Shouldn't IIS run the executable when a hit comes in?
  2. I am sure the form that shows the hits and that has the Exit button would not be visible. Not sure exactly how I turn that off.

I don't mind reading but I'm unsure exactly what to read to get a better understanding of these topics.

Thanks, John
