I am trying to create a windows service application using Borland C++ 6 and
Indy 9.0.18.

My service is a basic application with a TIdTelnetServer component which
responds with a 'hello' prompt when it sees a connection.

I can compile and run this OK as a standard application so I think the Indy
installation is OK. It seems as soon as I place any Indy component in the
service application it blows the linker up.

All compiles OK but the linker fails with an Access Violation failure.

I can successfully compile and link and run a similar application built in
Delphi 7.

Anyone any ideas ?.
