No, unfortunately you cannot - unless you port the application to the Win32 service API by yourself of course.

What about SRVANY.EXE?

NSSM - the Non-Sucking Service Manager nicely does the trick.

nssm.exe is a tiny executable that installs itself as a Windows service and runs whatever process you want as a child process.

To create a service DCMDump7777 running storescp listening on port 7777 and dumping everything to a directory, call:

Code: Select all

nssm install DCMDump7777 "C:\Program Files\ToolsDICOM\dcmtk-3.6.7-win64-dynamic\bin\storescp.exe"
nssm set DCMDump7777 AppParameters "7777 -fe .dcm"
nssm set DCMDump7777 AppDirectory "C:\TMP\DCMDUMP"
I had tried this with srvany before, but stumbled over its shortcomings. nssm is tiny, clean and really gets the job done.
