Creating a Windows service using Python

Introduction

Headless processes (with no UI) in Windows are called Services. They can be controlled (started, stopped, etc) using standard Windows controls such as the command console, Powershell or the Services tab in Task Manager. A good example might be an application that provides network services, such as a web application, or maybe a backup application that performs various background archival tasks. There are several ways to create and install a Python application as a Service in Windows.
