Write a service in powershell

Post by 4100260298 » Wed Feb 03, 2016 7:28 am

I need to do some testing with a service. I'm wondering if it is possible to write a service with the appropriate handlers in powershell?

No. PowerShell is not appropriate for creating a service. It cannot respond to service control. You can use the SDK to create a service that can host PowerShell scripts. Look into the Window Platform SDK PowerShell samples.
