Good Morning Suma

After you have installed your Windows Service, it will appear in the Services list that can be viewed in

Start --> Control Panel -->Administrators Tools -->Services (Win XP)

If you can see your Service after you install it, Follow the Simple Steps

1)Right Click on your Service and go to Properties
2)Under the General Tab , there Is an Option "Start up Type" Using the Drop Downlist Select "Automatic"

This means that when you start your Computer the Service will Run.

Hope this Helps

Thanks Vuyiswa..for your reply..but is there any way we can do it pragmatically. Means can we make Start up pragmatically so when window start it will automatically start without manual intervention?
