Using Task Manager

One of the simplest ways to debug a service is through the use of the Task Manager. While the service is running, start the Task Manager and click the Processes tab. Right-click the name of the EXE and then click Debug. This launches Visual C++ attached to that running process. Now, click Break on the Debug menu to allow you to set breakpoints in your code. Click Run to run to your selected breakpoints.
