Hi all,

I am new to 'pywin32' but I was able to create very quickly a new Windows 
service for my purpose thanks to your work!
Unfortunatelly when I install and then start my service, it gets stucked in 
Starting state and then I have no chance to stop or remove it except by 
restarting the computer.
Here is the code I used, could you help me on this one?
I added this line self.ReportServiceStatus(win32service.SERVICE_RUNNING) in 
SvcDoRun function compared to your example but it did not change anything.

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import win32service
import win32serviceutil
import win32event
import servicemanager

class MyClass(win32serviceutil.ServiceFramework):
    # you can NET START/STOP the service by the following name
    _svc_name_ = "My_CLASS"
    # this text shows up as the service name in the Service
    # Control Manager (SCM)
    _svc_display_name_ = "MY_CLASS"
    # this text shows up as the description in the SCM
    _svc_description_ = "MY_DESC"

    def __init__(self, args):
        # create Windows Service
        win32serviceutil.ServiceFramework.__init__(self, args)
        self.hWaitStop = win32event.CreateEvent(None, 0, 0, None)  # create an 
event to listen for stop requests on

    def SvcDoRun(self):
        win32event.WaitForSingleObject(self.hWaitStop, win32event.INFINITE)

    def SvcStop(self):
        # tell the SCM we're shutting down
        # fire the stop event
