If I want to run an application as Windows service, what solutions should I look into?
Solution 1 (by standard means of Windows OS): Using additional resources of Windows OS will probably be a good solution, but it won't work if the application you want to run as service wasn't developed for that. Unfortunately this excludes such method, because usually applications are not designed to work as services. Also such method would work only on Windows XP and 2003.
Solution 2 (pre-installed Windows resource kits): This solution will require registry knowledge as well as the ability to work with console. Digging into the registry may be rather harmful to computer, plus it won't give you the possibility to run EXE as service remotely, on scheduled time, etc.
It's obvious that none of the above solutions will allow you to easily and conveniently run EXE as service with flexible customizations.
