InstallRtServiceDescriptor (deprecated)

From INtime 6.0 the INtime Service and Port objects have been deprecated.

New projects should not be started using these features, and existing projects will not work with XM mode. You will receive a compiler warning by default if you use these calls.

Adds a service to the operating system by linking the service descriptor to the service descriptor list.

BOOLEAN InstallRtServiceDescriptor(
  LPSERVICEDESC lpServiceDescriptor    // a pointer to a service descriptor


A pointer to the SERVICEDESC structure.
