      This information describes how to create a Windows service that uses the .NET FileSystemWatcher class to monitor a directory for file operations, so users can import their data in a timely and accurate fashion. The information walks you through the following steps:
      • Starting a new application in Visual Basic .NET
      • Adding references needed by the new application
      • Adding code to the project
      • Adding and configuring an installer for the service
      • Building, installing, and testing the service
