I have an old 32bit delphi application (with no source code), that is used as a windows service. It runs fine on windows 2003 32bit.
I do not know if it has been created as a service originally, or converted to one later on. It is supposed to get installed to the server using a
/install flag on the command line.
When attempting to install it on a Windows 2008 R2 virtual machine, I am getting an APPCRASH event in the event log.
The service is supposed to read a blob from a remote SQL Server instance and write it out to the local HD. It also reads some initialization data from the registry.
Is there any way I can install this application as a service on windows 2008 r2 64bit?
If not, are there any workarounds I can try?
What are your suggestions?
